Journal of Play in Adulthood”

The new “Journal of Play in Adulthood” now has an open call for papers!
This new diamond open access journal (free to read and publish in) would welcome papers from information literacy practitioners and researchers. Research based articles are subject to double blind peer review, but we also welcome articles from practice, extended essays, and reviews that might be of interest to our readers.
Key topics of interest to the journal include the role of play in learning, work, our social and cultural lives, the benefits to individuals and society, and the interrelationship between play and other areas of adult life. The focus of this journal is on play in adulthood to explicitly distinguish it from children’s play, and to highlight that the motivations, contexts, and forms of play are, in many cases, different. In summary, it covers playful living, playful working, and playful learning.

ACRL IS Current Issues Virtual Discussion Forum,

Call for panelists for the ACRL IS Current Issues Virtual Discussion Forum,

2019 ALA Annual Meeting

The IS Current Issues Virtual Discussion Forum is an excellent opportunity for instruction librarians to explore and discuss current topics related to library instruction and information literacy. The steering committee welcomes proposals from individuals interested in participating in a panel discussion on alternatives to deficit models in academic libraries.

Deficit models of education focus on a learner’s weaknesses, including the knowledge, motivation, experiences, or cultural values that they presumably lack. This panel will question the use of deficit models in library instruction and information literacy, and present alternative approaches.

This virtual discussion will take place in advance of the 2019 ALA Annual Meeting: Tuesday, June 11 at 2 PM EST/11 AM PST. No previous experience with virtual presentations is necessary. The committee will work with selected panelists in advance to prepare for the online environment.

If you would like to share your knowledge and work on alternatives to deficit models in academic libraries, submit a proposal to be a panelist for the IS Current Issues Virtual Discussion Forum today!

Application Deadline: March 10, 2019 To submit a proposal, please use the onlinesubmission form Applicants will be notified by March 31, 2019
