Sally Neal, Associate Dean for Instruction & User Services at Butler University Libraries is Chair of ALI’s Information Literacy Committee informs us that, as of this posting, registration is still open for this FREE conference (includes breakfast, hot lunch, snacks).

Time: 8:45am – 3:30pm (Opening Session begins at 9:30)

from the Conference website:

How does your institution partner with other campus departments, units, and disciplines in teaching information literacy?  In addition to the traditional partnering we do with faculty and discipline departments and programs, we want to know how you are partnering with writing centers, learning resource centers, career services, student affairs, greek life, health & wellness, programs, diversity programs & services, campus publishing initiatives (undergraduate journals and manuscript publications), and teaching and learning centers. Partnering with curricular development committees and administrative units can also be discussed concerning developing programmatic information literacy.  The goal is to highlight how “two or three can be better than one” when it comes to teaching the concepts of information literacy.

Via the unconference model, attendees will identify the topics to be discussed through the day and work together to share examples and discuss options.

UnConference Planning Commitee members are:

  • Sally Neal, Instruction & User Services Associate Dean, Butler Universitty
  • Brian Bunnett, Chair of Public Services, Indiana State University
  • Lisa Jarrell, Head of Educational Technology and Resources Collection, Ball State University
