Please join Amigos Library Services for the webinar “Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Realities: The Possibilities and Limitations”. It will take place from 10:00 to 11:00 AM on Thursday, May 14. A description of the webinar and additional information are below.

Augmented, virtual, and mixed realities have many obvious benefits for learning, work, and social engagement. However, they also pose several ethical concerns that need consideration before they are fully embraced. It is critical for librarians to understand these realities to determine how they can be best used in the library as well as how library users may want and need to interact with them. In this session, Dr. Lauren Hays, will share examples of how augmented, virtual, and mixed realities are being used in a variety of settings. She will then lead a discussion of current use cases and potentialities for future growth. Finally, attendees will have the opportunity to brainstorm use cases in their libraries for augmented, virtual, and mixed reality technologies.

Learning Objectives

  • attendees will discover ways augmented, virtual, and mixed realities are currently being used
  • attendees will consider the possibilities and limitations of augmented, virtual, and mixed realities
  • attendees will brainstorm ways augmented, virtual, and mixed realities can be used in library settings

For more information, including fees, and to register, please go here.

Have you prepared a presentation proposal that was accepted for a conference that has been recently postponed or canceled due to COVID-19? We invite you to consider submitting that proposal for OLC’s annual fall conference. We are preparing virtual opportunities to pair with our face-to-face event, to ensure that wherever November finds us, attendees will have access to the meaningful session topics and networking that OLC Accelerate provides.

At OLC Accelerate, we will gather together to collaboratively envision the theme “20/20 Vision: Envisioning the Future of Online, Blended and Digital Learning”. We invite you to share your 20/20 vision by submitting a proposal and ask you to indicate in your submission your preference to present onsite, virtually, or either. Learn more and submit a presentation here.

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. Check with CARLI for a template.

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.
