Immersion Program Assessment and Intentional Teaching Track Applications

Applications for the ACRL Information Literacy Immersion Program Assessment and Intentional Teaching Tracks are due Friday, May 2, 2014. The Immersion Program allows you to embrace your educational role by embarking on a path of teacher development and pedagogical inquiry in a community of practice for academic librarians devoted to collaborative learning and individual renewal.  The Assessment and Intentional Teaching Tracks will be offered November 19-22, 2014, in Nashville, Tennessee.

Assessment: Demonstrating the Educational Value of the Academic Library Track — Discover how to approach assessment from a learning-centered perspective. Participants will emerge with a broader understanding of assessment and how to use assessment as an important tool to guide evidence-based classroom, curriculum and program development.

Intentional Teaching: Reflective Teaching to Improve Student Learning Track — Find out how to become more self-aware and self-directed as a teacher.  This track is aimed at the experienced academic librarian (5+ years teaching experience, in a library or other setting) and facilitates the process of critical reflection through peer discussion, readings and personal reflection as a pathway to professional growth and renewal.
