The first 2016-2017 ACRL-OR Professional Development Scholarship has been awarded to Kate Rubick of Lewis & Clark College. This scholarship is designed to allow ACRL-OR members the chance to apply for awards of up to $250 to attend conferences, workshops, courses, seminars, or other learning opportunities three times throughout the year. You can find out more about the multiple scholarship opportunities ACRL-OR provides here on the ACRL-OR Scholarships page.

Rubick will use her award to attend the March 2017 ACRL National Conference in Baltimore, MD both to learn from other librarians using Joseph Bizup’s BEAM framework to teach research-based writing and to deliver a panel presentation on her own librarian-faculty teaching collaboration based on BEAM.

Rubick is looking to build community among librarians and faculty teaching with BEAM and to make the BEAM framework more widely known. To that end, Rubick notes in her scholarship application that she may turn her national talk and lessons learned into a short talk for the regional conference held by ACRL-OR and ACRL-WA. Be on the lookout for that future session! Rubick will also be scouting new ideas on instruction to share with the Instruction Team she chairs at Lewis & Clark’s Watzek Library.

Are you looking for support to attend a professional development event of your own? Applications for the ACRL-OR Professional Development Scholarship are reviewed three times a year. The next deadline is March 31, 2017.
