Register now for ACRL Preconference Sessions at OLA
ACRL-Oregon is sponsoring two preconference sessions at this year’s Oregon Library Association Conference that will be of interest to academic librarians across the state! The preconference sessions are from 8am-5pm, Wednesday, April 18th in Eugene, OR. Please consider signing up for one or both of them!
Southern Oregon University faculty member Maureen Flanagan Battistella will lead a preconference sharing “How to Document Oregon’s Thousand Points of Life: Techniques and Technologies to Engage Your Community Using an Oral History Project” with a fantastic panel of university faculty and librarians. You can check out their Stories of Southern Oregon digital collection where they collected their local oral histories.
Portland Community College librarian Pam Kessinger will lead a panel along with faculty from PCC’s Developmental Education program to explore “Metacognition and Reading Strategies to Bridge Students Toward Inquiry.” Librarians will learn how to use the Reading Apprenticeship framework as well as our own ACRL Framework for Information Literacy to develop meaningful information literacy instruction and student reflection. This session is co-sponsored with the Library Instruction Round Table.
Can’t make the whole conference? Did you know you can sign up for OLA preconferences without paying to attend the full OLA Conference? Take advantage of attending one or both of the preconference sessions ($55 per session) and then, (lucky you!) Join your ACRL colleagues from 5:00-7:00pm for the ACRL-Oregon Reception at the First National Taphouse. We hope to see you there!
