Capilano University, in partnership with BCLA’s Academic Librarians Section, is hosting a one-day workshop on the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education. The workshop will take place on May 1, 2015 at Capilano University in North Vancouver.
Through presentations, small-group work, and individual planning and reflection, the workshop will open up conversation around the following questions:
• What theoretical concepts guided the creation of the new Framework?
• How does the Framework compare to the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (2000)?
• What are the six “frames”?
• What are the first steps to implementing the Framework in our institutions?
• How will this impact student learning outcomes and the way we teach our classes?
• What new opportunities for collaboration and project work will the new Framework present?
• As a community of practice, what is our commitment to the Framework and its role in teaching and learning?
This workshop is open to practitioners and students from across the information professions, and registration information will be available shortly. Space will be limited to 40 participants.
We are also seeking event collaborators and one presenter for each of the six frames. To participate, please contact Jocelyn Hallman, Teaching and Learning Librarian at Capilano University, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
