We are pleased to announce our annual conference will be held Friday, June 21
at New England Institute of Technology in East Greenwich, RI. This year’s
program, “Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences,” will explore the
use of student-centered teaching in information literacy instruction.
We seek proposals that provide examples of student-centered approaches that
may include, but are not limited to, inquiry based learning, critical library
pedagogy, exercising empathy and care, collaborative construction of meaning,
instruction design, and librarian as facilitator of student success.
Each presenter should plan on speaking for 30-35 minutes with an additional
10-15 minutes for questions and discussion (45 minutes total). We are looking
for individual, group, or panel presentations by librarians and/or their
collaborative colleagues. Interactive workshops involving computers/devices
and hands-on activities are welcome.
NELIG encourages librarians with any amount of experience to submit a
proposal, and we are dedicated to providing opportunities for librarians to
learn practical ideas from one another. Please feel free to email us if you
have any questions about presenting.
Proposals are due by Friday, March 22, 2019 and should be submitted via the
link below. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance status by Friday,
April 12, 2019 after a blind review by the planning committee.
