CCLI 2019 – Call for Proposals

Reimagining Student Success: Approaches That Increase Participation, Representation, and Relevance
California Conference on Library Instruction – May 3, 2019

 

CCLI 2019 invites practice and research-based approaches on the inventive, intersecting, and radical ways your instruction has redefined/reimagined student success. In particular, CCLI welcomes proposals that highlight participatory learning, critical information literacy and pedagogy, and approaches that put students at the center of their learning. Evolving pedagogy and an increased emphasis on assessment have driven librarians to reconfigure their approaches to student success: participation in campus-wide initiatives; rethinking student learning outcomes and assessment; encouraging experimentation and learning that empowers students to take the lead in their own success.

We invite you to submit a proposal in the form of a 60-minute presentation or panel discussion, a 75- minute active learning workshop, or a 5-7 minute lightning talk. We recommend that prospective presenters review our evaluation rubric for presentations and workshops at: https://goo.gl/wQHEV9. Proposals should relate to the conference theme, clearly outline the session, and be timely and applicable to librarians. For presentations and workshops, please also include 2-3 learning outcomes, as well as detail on how you plan to incorporate active learning into your session.

Examples of specific questions that could be addressed are:
What methods do you use to place students at the center of their learning?
How has the goal of inclusivity altered your teaching practice?
What markers of student success do you consider before undertaking a change in your instruction?
What approaches have you taken that have helped to shift your campus’s thinking about student success in information literacy?

Please submit your CCLI 2019 proposal at: https://goo.gl/MzLYPY .The deadline for submissions is Monday, October 22. CCLI 2019 will be held at the University of San Francisco on Friday, May 3, 2019.
We appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you! For questions, contact Quincy McCrary (qmccrary@gmail.com) or Irene Korber (ikorber@csuchico.edu).
