Apply to become a member of the ACRL Immersion Program Faculty

ACRL announces the ACRL Information Literacy Immersion Program Call for Faculty Applications. The Immersion Program, now in its twelfth year, brings together academic librarians for four to five days of intensive work in teaching and information literacy. With nearly 1,600 graduates of previous national and regional sessions, the Immersion Program has transformed individuals, students, and instruction programs nationally and internationally. Join twelve of your colleagues in teaching this exciting national program.

There are generally four Immersion Programs held each year. The Teacher and Program Track Immersion Program is normally offered in July or early August; the Assessment and Intentional Teacher Track Immersion Program is usually offered in November or early December. Additional programs are also being considered. While these four programs have been foundational for Immersion and are expected to continue, ACRL and the Immersion faculty look forward to new innovations in the curriculum, delivery modality, and in the types of programs offered. We are seeking new colleagues who will creatively develop existing and new programs that take Immersion in new and exciting directions. New faculty will focus on these new programs more than on the traditional programs.

The Complete Call for Immersion Program Faculty Applications is online. September 1, 2010 is the application deadline. Questions should be directed to Julie Planchon Wolf at jwolf@uwb.edu.
