Call For Spring Workshop Proposals

February 19, 2016

Date: Friday, May 20th, 2016

Location: Marywood University, Scranton, Pennsylvania

CRD invites proposals for breakout sessions for the 2016 CRD Spring Workshop “Critical Pedagogy and Information Literacy Instruction. Critical pedagogy encourages students to question social norms and explore the relationship between power and knowledge in order to develop a critical consciousness and implement social change. Librarians are beginning to look at the environment that surrounds information and challenge students to explore beyond search but rather discover and address the ecosystem that interacts with information.We invite speakers to talk about their practical or creative approaches to this topic.  How did you address this topic at your institution? What was the process? What were you trying to achieve? Who was involved? What was the result? How can the ideas be adapted beyond your library situation? Breakout sessions will be one hour in length. To be considered for a session, you must be from a Pennsylvania library. Please submit the following form by April 1, 2016.
