Call for Panelists: ACRL Instruction Section’s April 28 Webinar on Info. Lit. Best Practices (Deadline Mon., March 16)

(via Hailley Fargo, Penn State University)

The ACRL Instruction Section Information Literacy Best Practices Committee and the ACRL FYE Discussion Group seek participants for an upcoming webinar, “Characteristics of Programs of Information Literacy that Illustrate Best Practices”.

Does your information literacy program embody one (or more) of these seven characteristics in your first-year instruction? If so, we’d like to hear from you!

Each panelist will have ten minutes to discuss their first-year information literacy program and how it aligns with the characteristics, including practical and concrete examples. Programs can include both credit-bearing courses and distributed (non-credit bearing) library instruction. Librarians from outside of the United States, community or junior colleges, or historically black colleges and universities are especially encouraged to participate.

Our webinar will be held on Tuesday, April 28 at 1:00 PM CDT.  To express interest, please contact Hailley Fargo, at hailley.fargo@gmail.com, by Monday, March 16.
