ACRL-Oregon is sponsoring two Preconferences at the Oregon Library Association Conference that will be of interest to academic librarians across the state. Please consider signing up for one or both of them!
Portland Community College librarian Pam Kessinger will be leading a panel with faculty from PCC’s Developmental Education program to explore “Metacognition and Reading Strategies to Bridge Students Toward Inquiry.” Librarians who teach will learn how the Reading Apprenticeship framework as well as our own ACRL Framework for Information Literacy can be used to develop meaningful information literacy instruction. This session is co-sponsored with the Library Instruction Round Table.
In August 2017, ACRL-Oregon awarded Maureen Flanagan Battistella a professional development award to attend the American Association of State and Local History conference. Maureen’s attendance there was part of an ongoing project in partnership with colleagues at Southern Oregon University, Hannon Library, Jackson County Library, and others to create “unique digital collections that tell the stories of Southern Oregon.”
Interested in learning more about Maureen’s research and how to engage your own community via an oral history project? Sign up to attend the pre-conference session she is leading, “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.
Interested in having your own conference, workshop, or professional development project funded? Apply for an ACRL-Oregon professional development award now! Deadline for next consideration is February 28, 2018.
