The ACRL Immersion Program is all new for 2018! The 4.5-day program will take place at the University of St. Thomas, in St. Paul, Minnesota from July 29 to August 3, 2018. The new, more central location will provide easy travel access, while still providing the small campus feel with nearby urban amenities.
The 2018 ACRL Immersion Program will launch a major curriculum revision. The Immersion Faculty are responding to feedback from teaching librarians, including past Immersion Program participants, in order to design a learning experience that meets current challenges, is responsive and flexible, enables participant-driven learning goals and experiences, and provides opportunities to develop a critical reflective practice. The program is not just for instruction or information literacy librarians or instruction coordinators. It is designed for anyone engaged in the educational role of libraries in higher education, including librarians from all library areas that engage in teaching and learning practices such as offering workshops, designing library assignments, creating exhibits, etc.
Applicants may register for the program on a first come, first served basis in early 2018.
Some scholarships will be available; scholarship details will also be available in early 2018. Watch the Immersion Program webpage for details!
