The video archive of yesterday’s ACRL Presents webinar “Teaching Information Literacy Threshold Concepts: Lesson Plans for Librarians” is now available. The webinar featured a conversation with Gayle Schaub and Hazel McClure, two of the editors of the ACRL publication Teaching Information Literacy Threshold Concepts.
Join us for the free ACRL Presents webinar, “Teaching Information Literacy Threshold Concepts: Lesson Plans for Librarians,” on Wednesday, July 29, from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. Central (11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Pacific | 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. Mountain | 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. Central | 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. Eastern). Please note that you can convert additional time zones online at www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html.
The articles in the bibliography were chosen by members of the committee based on interest. The list represents a wide variety of disciplines around threshold concepts and serves as an introduction to threshold concepts in the literature of educational theory. There are several examples for how threshold concepts are determined, taught and assessed including case studies and evidence-based assessment.
Articles were chosen from the authoritative resource on threshold concepts:
The ACRLFramework for Information Literacy for Higher Educationhas introduced a new way of thinking and practicing to the academic library community, and it has already brought both inspiration and challenge to librarians as they explore new directions in information literacy practice and research. To support the implementation of the Framework, the ACRL Board of Directors has approved the creation of a new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy Advisory Board. These member leaders will work with the ACRL Visiting Program Officer for Information Literacy to offer a range of expertise and perspectives that can positively and strategically shape the growth and development of the Framework.
We are pleased to welcome the following as members of the inaugural ACRL Framework for Information Literacy Advisory Board:
Tish Hayes (Information Literacy Librarian, Moraine Valley Community College)
Susan Miller (Past Chair, ACRL Instruction Section, 2012-2013)
Leslie Morgan (First Year Studies Librarian, Notre Dame University)
Nicole Pagowsky (Assistant Librarian, University of Arizona)
Donna Witek (Public Services Librarian & Associate Professor, University of Scranton)
Based on participant feedback from the March 11, 2015, webinar on the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, we’ve created a listserv to provide a convenient spot for exchanging ideas about the Framework. The new list will serve as an open forum for asking questions, posting professional development opportunities, and sharing examples of how you are using the Framework at your libraries.

The recorded presentation for the ACRL Presents webinar Putting the Framework for Information Literacy into Action: Next Steps is now available as well.
