The ACRL Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee is pleased to announce the selection of Jenny Dale, Kate Ganski, Samantha Godbey, and Kim Pittman as the newest presenters for the one-day workshop, Engaging with the ACRL Framework: A Catalyst for Exploring and Expanding Our Teaching Practices. Jenny, Kate, Samantha, and Kim join the current presenter team as partners in shaping the curriculum and presenting the workshop.

Jenny Dale is the Information Literacy Coordinator at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro; Kate Ganski is the Interim Assistant Director of Libraries for User Services at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee; Samantha Godbey is the Education Librarian and Assistant Professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; and Kim Pittman is the Information Literacy and Assessment Librarian at the University of Minnesota, Duluth.

“We are very excited to have Jenny, Kate, Samantha, and Kim join the presenter team for the Framework workshop,” said ACRL Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee Chair Elizabeth Berman of Tufts University. “Not only does this group bring an abundance of expertise on teaching the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education at a time when academic librarians need it most, but their fresh voices and enthusiasm for their new roles will ensure these workshops support librarians in enriching their teaching practices for a long time to come.”

The Engaging with the ACRL Framework workshop is currently offered as a “roadshow” as part of ACRL’s slate of day-long licensed workshops that can be brought to your campus, chapter, or consortia at any time year-round.
