DEADLINE PASSED: Call For Proposals: New Directions in Information Fluency Conference

New Directions in Information Fluency: A Conference

Our present generation of skilled and accomplished digital natives has a universe of information at its fingertips. But, while millennials can search quickly and productively, they have trouble sifting, sorting, and ranking the results. They lack experience with print archives and the fundamental differences between encountering information digitally and in print. They need help with the research process: everything from presearch to evaluating sources' arguments to integrating sources into their own projects. How can librarians and faculty best teach these higher-level skills in a world of information overload?

Join the ACRL Award-winning Thomas Tredway Library as we explore these provocative and challenging issues in our one-day conference.

The keynote speaker is Sandra Jamieson, Director of Writing Across the Curriculum at Drew University and a principal researcher on the Citation Project (http://site.citationproject.net/).

We welcome presentations on topics including:


new pedagogical approaches to teaching . . .

Conference Report from ACRL

By Cory Lampert on April 5, 2007 8:46 AM | Permalink
I returned Monday, a bit run down, from the excitement of the ACRL Conference in Baltimore. This was my first time attending the conference and I found it to be very worthwhile and fun in both programming and in the networking/social opportunities. Here is a summary of the highlights: Thursday: I got an early start and registered in the morning so that I could avoid the rush prior to the Keynote Address and Opening Reception. The keynote speaker, Michael Eric Dyson kicked off a rather rousing afternoon and somehow managed to cover a wide range of social issues AND tie it all into why librarianship is a noble pursuit. It is always fun to see a speaker that is also capable of entertaining, so Dyson's Baptist preaching and hip-hop ad-libbing added a welcome bit of flavor to the presentation. After the presentation, I took a lap through the exhibits, talked to a few very persistant salesmen and had an over-priced glass of bad wine before heading out to a dinner meeting with a vendor. Since this is a summary of highlights, I will mention here that it is worth it to try the Maryland crab cakes, even if you aren't a huge seafood fan. They were great.
