Fall Info Lit Learning Opportunities from ACRL:
Service Learning and Information Literacy: Models for Engagement (Webcast: October 4, 2011): The service learning (SL) and civic engagement movement is growing rapidly in higher education yet its connection to libraries and librarians is infrequently discussed. This webcast will define and promote SL collaborations between librarians, faculty, students and community partners.
Embedded Librarians: Integrating Information Literacy Instruction at the Point of Need(Webcast: October 25, 2011): More and more libraries are adopting embedded librarianship as an approach to creating an integrated and sustained library instruction presence in classes across the curriculum. In this webcast, practicing embedded librarians will describe examples of successful projects across the range of academic levels and departments, including both online and on-campus instruction.
Creating a “Social Life” for Information Literacy Instruction in Libraries (Online Seminar: October 31 – November 18, 2011): This course will explore new ways that instruction librarians can retool their instructional approaches to actively engage students in the process of information retrieval and knowledge creation.
