“Flip the Deficit Script!: How to Build Strengths-Based Information Literacy Instruction and Programs”

Thursday, March 26 (12:30-1:30 PM CDT)

Register here.

We have an exciting group of scholar-librarians addressing this question: What if we made students’ life-research experiences the focus of curriculum design for information literacy?

Panelists: Liz Kocevar-Weidinger, Head of Research & Instruction Services at Virginia Military Institute. Mark Lenker, Teaching and Learning Librarian at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Tatiana Pashkova-Balkenhol, Undergraduate Research and Instruction Librarian at Millersville University, PA. Emily Cox, Collections and Research Librarian for Humanities, Social Sciences, and Digital Media at NC State University.

The panel will discuss strengths-based strategies they’ve developed and integrated into their learning environments. They’ll also present their findings about teaching research skills to students and the connections between students’ real world information-seeking experiences and academic research.

Registration for our Thursday (Amigos) session is full. We now have a repeat session opened for registration on Friday, March 20, at 11:00 AM CDT. Register here. A description of the webinar is below.

“Know and Go: Don’t Stand So Close to Me – Strategies you need right now to respond to COVID-19 in your face-to-face and remote work spaces”

“Should we really cancel this event we’ve spent months planning?” “How do I protect my staff?” While much of the concern about COVID-19 is focused on end consumers of services and goods, it’s time to take a serious look at your most valuable assets – the service providers.

IACRL has decided to cancel the webinar viewing. It will reschedule the event for later in 2020. More information on the event is below.

Interested in learning more about how to communicate in clear and precise language online, especially through library websites, research guides, and virtual instruction? Want an opportunity to network with academic and research librarian colleagues? Never visited Northern Illinois University’s Founders Memorial Library and want to take a tour? Consider attending a viewing of the ACRL webinar “Teaching Online in Plain Language: Creating Clear Research Guides, Library Websites, and Online Instruction” at Founders Memorial Library in Dekalb, IL.

A description of the webinar is below.

“Plain language” is a term from the legal field: federal law requires that government agencies are required to use clear communication that the public can understand and use. As online teachers, we can take advantage of the set of clear guidelines and best practices that has grown up around this requirement. The federal plain language guidelines are fully in line with web usability recommendations, and can help streamline and clarify our online teaching. Whether you’re writing for a library website, a tutorial, a research guide or some other format, you’ll learn how to make your materials more accessible to the widest possible audience without dumbing them down.

Light breakfast refreshments will be served. After the webinar, discuss related issues and concepts with fellow attendees. End your morning with a tour of the NIU Memorial Library.

There is no cost associated with attending the event itself, and it is open to all Illinois academic and research librarians, regardless of whether or not they are members of IACRL.

Registration is now open for the CARLI Instruction Committee sponsored webinar: “ACT UP: Evaluating Sources and Pushing Against Privilege”, on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CDT.

In this webinar, Dawn Stahura discusses her evaluation method called ACT UP, which goes beyond standard evaluation methods like CRAAP. Because source evaluation is social justice work, it is critical we teach students how to push against privilege in publishing as well as identifying misinformation before sharing it with others. More background information for the webinar is available here.

To register, visit here. This webinar will be recorded and posted to the CARLI website.

Please send any questions to support@carli.illinois.edu.

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.
