The Association for College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education has received mixed responses from academic librarians since its introduction in 2015. The Framework presents both opportunities and challenges in recognizing the dynamic information landscape and the social and political aspects of information literacy. This session highlights the theoretical foundations, examples of specific student learning outcomes, as well as pedagogical and assessment approaches based on the Framework.
Representing one's teaching in specific and dynamic ways is a challenging task in a teaching portfolio or teaching statement. This workshop will offer you some strategies in composing a teaching statement and portfolio that is unique and represents the innovative work you do with students. It would help to come to this session with one or two specific moments/memories/approaches in your mind that you think represent you as a teacher.
Time to talk. A panel of experienced and resourceful colleagues will talk about teaching, answer questions and share their passion for teaching with the summit participants.
