Call for Proposals: CARLI Instruction Showcase 2018 (Deadline April 2)

(via Lorna Engels, CARLI)

The CARLI Instruction Committee is seeking presentation proposals for the sixth annual Instruction Showcase on Thursday, May 31, at Dominican University in River Forest, IL. CARLI members are welcome to submit proposals on all library instruction topics, and encouraged to draw inspiration from the committee’s theme this year, “We Can’t Do It Alone: Joining Forces For Sustainable Partnerships.” Examples related to the theme include instruction sessions that reflect successful collaborations with teaching faculty or that are part of a ongoing instruction initiative. Each breakout room is equipped with a presenter’s station, however, please note that there will not be a computer lab available this year.

Proposals should outline an instruction session activity that supports skills-based or conceptual learning and encourages active student participation. Please include a full lesson plan with your proposal. Feel free to use your preferred format, or you may contact CARLI for a template. (See note below about contact information.) All lesson plans must include the following elements: topic, learning objectives, materials, activity overview, assessment of student learning, and applicable knowledge practices and/or dispositions from the Framework for Information Literacy. Presenters will be given 15 minutes to present and five minutes for questions and answers.

If interested, please submit the proposal form found no later than Monday, April 2nd.. Submissions will be reviewed by the CARLI Instruction Committee; notifications will be sent during the week of April 9th. Please send any questions about the Instruction Showcase to
