Call for Proposals Extended: CARLI’s 8th Annual Instruction Showcase (Online) Friday, May 29–New Deadline Friday, May 8

(via Lorna Engels, CARLI)

The CARLI Instruction Committee is seeking presentation proposals for the 8th annual Instruction Showcase. This year’s Online Showcase will take place on Friday, May 29.

CARLI members are welcome to submit proposals on all library instruction topics, and encouraged to draw inspiration from the committee’s theme this year, “Fresh Starts and Restarts: Growing Beyond Your Comfort Zone.” Lesson plans related to the theme might include new approaches to evaluating information, reimagined instruction for improved accessibility, student-centered approaches to learning, and culturally sustaining pedagogies, as well as techniques for teaching new systems such as Primo VE. We also welcome proposals that focus on the shift to online instruction or strategies developed in reaction to the current crisis.

Proposals should outline an instructional activity that supports skills-based or conceptual learning and encourages active student participation. Please include a full lesson plan with your proposal. Attached is a template but feel free to use your preferred format.

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 here, no later than 5:00 PM on Friday, May 8. Submissions will be reviewed by the CARLI Instruction Committee; notifications will be sent during the week of May 11.

Please send any questions about the Instruction Showcase to support@carli.illinois.edu.
