(via the ACRL Instruction Section)

Registration is now open for the next Current Issues Panel Discussion by the ACRL Instruction Section’s Virtual Engagement Committee. The webinar, titled “Privacy Literacy Reboot: Grounding Practice in Theory”, will take place on Friday, December 4, at 1:00 PM CDT. The moderators for the panel discussion will be Alexandria Chisholm and Sarah Hartman-Caverly of Pennsylvania State University. The panelists will be Symphony Bruce of American University, Claire Lobdell of Greenfield Community College, and Andrew Wesolek of Vanderbilt University. More information is below.

With growing social justice issues related to algorithmic bias and the disparate impact of surveillance, it is more important than ever for librarians to assume leadership in advocating for and educating about privacy literacy (PL). Participants will gain working knowledge of contemporary privacy challenges and solutions to build professional self-efficacy, access the moderators’ PL toolkit featuring resources to develop future PL programming, and leave inspired to lead PL education and advocacy initiatives.

This webinar is free and open to all. A recording will be made available after the session.

Register now, as space is limited.  Find out more by reading the discussion digest.
