High school and college teacher-librarians face increasing challenges in preparing high school students for college success. The dire need for librarians in California K-12 schools makes these challenges all the more difficult. College and university librarians also face increasing challenges in helping new students adjust and learn how to learn for scholarly research needs and lifelong learning. What are the obstacles and opportunities you face in working with teachers and higher education faculty and others in the crucial transition to college timeframe? What has worked for you and your colleagues in helping high school students, teachers/faculty, and new college students with this kind of transition? How have you reached out to those in other types of institutions and organizations to help each other with these efforts? Sharing your innovations, your experimental attempts, your successes, and even your failures can help you and your colleagues move forward toward successful models for this effort.

Dr. Lesley Farmer, CSULB Librarianship Program & Department Chair of Advanced Studies in Education & Counseling, will be the main speaker at this first annual LILi conference, which highlights a crucial area for cooperation and collaboration among different types of libraries for a common goal: supportive, sequential information literacy instruction for all levels and in all types of libraries: https://sites.google.com/site/lifelonginformationliteracy/ Dr. Farmer will address the Common Core Standards, the California State Standards, and the role of information literacy instruction in the transition from high school to college.

The LILi (Lifelong Information Literacy) group invites you to submit proposals related to information literacy instruction (ILI) for 30-minute panel sessions, 10-minute lightning talks, and poster sessions, as well as an afternoon open mike period for 2-3-minute updates and transitioning tips. Proposals will be blind-reviewed, so please do not include identifying information in the text of your abstract. Topic ideas include, but are not limited to:
* ILI and Common Core Standards and/or California State Standards
* Effective uses of new technology to support IL pedagogy
* Innovative uses of technology to support IL pedagogy
* New, innovative IL pedagogical approaches
* Engaging active learning exercises for ILI
* ILI assessment and rubrics that work, e.g., "exit tickets"
* Outreach for transitions from high school to college
* Outreach/linkages among different types of libraries in support of transitions to college
* Makerspaces with ILI elements
* Working with teachers/faculty
* Working with other institutional stakeholders
Library school/iSchool students are also encouraged to submit poster session proposals. A table will be available for instructional and promotional handouts.

In conjunction with ICWL 2014
13th International Conference on Web-based Learning

13-16 August 2014
Tallinn, Estonia

==================================================================


MOTIVATION
===========

The workshop follows the previous SPeL 2008, SPeL 2009, SPeL 2010, SPeL
2011, DULP & SPeL 2012 and SPeL 2013 workshops, held in conjunction with the
SAINT 2008 conference, WI/IAT 2009 conference, DEXA 2010 conference, ICWL
2011 conference, ICALT 2012 conference and ICSTCC 2013 conference
respectively. The general topic of the workshop is the social and personal
computing for web-supported learning communities.

Web-based learning is moving from centralized, institution-based systems to
a decentralized and informal creation and sharing of knowledge. Social
software (e.g., blogs, wikis, social bookmarking systems, media sharing
services) is increasingly being used for e-learning purposes, helping to
create novel learning experiences and knowledge. In the world of pervasive
Internet, learners are also evolving: the so-called "digital natives" want
to be in constant communication with their peers, they expect an
individualized instruction and a personalized learning environment, which
automatically adapt to their individual needs. The challenge in this context
is to provide intelligent and adaptive support for collaborative learning,
taking into consideration the individual differences between learners.

This workshop deals with current research on collaboration and
personalization issues in Web-supported learning communities, leading
towards the creation of a truly social and adaptive learning environment.
Its aim is to provide a forum for discussing new trends and initiatives in
this area, including research about the planning, development, application,
and evaluation of intelligent e-learning systems, where people can learn
together in a personalized way through social interaction with other
learners.


TOPICS OF INTEREST
==================

The workshop welcomes submissions covering aspects of collaboration, social
interactions, adaptivity and personalization in technology enhanced
learning, particularly related to issues about:

    * Social learning environments
    * Theory and modeling of social computing in education
    * Web 2.0 tools for collaborative learning
    * Personal learning environments
    * Lifelong learning networks
    * Virtual spaces for learning communities
    * Social networks analysis and mining
    * Computer-supported collaborative learning
    * Personalized and adaptive learning
    * Adaptation methods and techniques for groups of learners
    * Intelligent learner and group modeling
    * Collaborative filtering and recommendations for learners
    * Game-based social learning
    * Personalized mobile learning applications
    * Cloud-based social learning
    * Intelligent agent technology for social learning
    * Metadata, folksonomies and tagging
    * Semantic web and ontologies for personalized learning

2014 Themed Issue:

BUYING AN EDUCATION? EDTPA AND THE CORPORATIZATION OF PUBLIC EDUCATION

 

There are varying assessments on the ethics as well as the effectiveness and
appropriateness of teacher performance assessment.  Scholars, practitioners,
students, politicians, and those with business interests have differing and
conflicting opinions on how this change in the field will impact the field
itself, and the teachers and students living and working within this system.
According to Linda Darling-Hammond, "Like assessments in other professions,
such as the bar exam or the medical boards, the edTPA is a peer-developed
process that evaluates how well candidates have mastered a body of knowledge
and skills, and a tool that teacher educators and institutions of higher
learning can use to develop their programs. It does not restrict or replace
the judgment of professionals in designing their courses and supervising
their candidates, as they always have" (para 15).  We welcome manuscripts
that detail and dissect the practical and ethical implications of
implementing edTPA for students, teacher educators, and school districts.

Call For Proposals: Valuing Librarianship: Core Values in Theory and Practice

Call For Proposals

Editors: Selinda A. Berg and Heidi LM Jacobs
Leddy Library, University of Windsor
ValuingLibrarianship@gmail.com

In 2004, the American Library Association (ALA)'s Core Values of Librarianship statement identified eleven core values:

  • Access
  • Confidentiality and privacy
  • Democracy
  • Diversity
  • Education and lifelong learning
  • Intellectual freedom
  • Preservation
  • The public good
  • Professionalism
  • Service
  • Social responsibility

As the ALA document explains, "the foundation of modern librarianship rests on an essential set of core values that define, inform, and guide our professional practice.These values reflect the history and ongoing development of the profession and have been advanced, expanded, and refined by numerous policy statements of the American Library Association."

While the ALA is not the only national library association to articulate their core values, 2014 marks the ten-year anniversary of the ALA's adoption of this statement. Such an anniversary offers us a useful opportunity to consider how core values have shaped, influenced, and informed libraries and librarianship in North America and around the world.

Individual values such as democracy, diversity, access, and social responsibility have been the subject of inquiry by prominent scholars in library studies. There has not, however, been a coherent collection of scholarship addressing these specific, individual values in the practice of librarianship. Valuing Librarianship, a special issue of Library Trends, is an attempt to redress this absence within the context of public, school, special, and academic libraries.

This proposed issue of Library Trends will invite practicing librarians and LIS scholars to address librarianship's present and future in relation to its core values. Using the ALA Core Values of Librarianship statement as a framework, Valuing Librarianship will explore how these core values have informed, influenced, guided, and contextualized libraries and librarianship in the past ten years and consider how these values might guide our profession in the future.

Contributors are invited to select one specific core value and consider questions such as:

  • How has this value evolved over the last ten years?
  • How do librarians enact and advocate for this particular core value? Are librarians successful in their advocacy?
  • Where does this particular value emerge in librarianship or libraries? Is attention to this value changing libraries, the work we do in the profession, or the profession itself?
  • Other questions that look specifically at how one core value reflects, informs, guides, or challenges current practices and thought within libraries or librarianship.

Values are a key building block of one's professional identity and librarians must define, describe, and enact these values daily. This special issue of Library Trends will work toward articulating these values in meaningful ways in order to build upon the foundations of librarianship and shape it for the future.

Submissions: For consideration in Valuing Librarianship, please submit the following to ValuingLibrarianship@gmail.com by June 15, 2014:

  • An abstract of 500 words that clearly identifies the selected core value
  • A 50-100 word biographical statement of author(s)
  • A list of author's/authors' selected and relevant publications and presentations with links as available.

Preliminary Publication Timeline:

June 15, 2014:                     Abstracts (500 words) due
September 1, 2014:            Notification of acceptance decisions
January 15, 2015:                Full papers due
June 15, 2015:                     Final revisions due
February, 2016:                    Publication

Our New Frontier:  Metaliteracy, Threshold Concepts, New Standards, and Other
Wild Ideas
2014 Connecticut Information Literacy Conference
Friday, June 13, 2014
Manchester Community College
Manchester, Connecticut
9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Today's information literacy landscape can certainly feel like uncharted
territory. Lifelong learners require skills in a wide range of literacies
including digital, media, and visual.  How will these multiple literacies
transform the ways in which we interact with students both inside and outside
the classroom? What will changing ACRL standards mean to existing information
literacy programs?  Join library colleagues, faculty members, and other trail
blazers from across Connecticut and beyond in discussing how to stake claims in
this vast new world of information literacy.
Due to the popularity of our confirmed keynote speakers, Trudi Jacobson and Tom
Mackey, authors of the forthcoming book Metaliteracy: Reinventing Information
Literacy to Empower Learners, we are extending the deadline for speaker
proposals. Don't miss out on this opportunity to share your successes with
colleagues.
Call for Proposals now through March 7, 2014!
The Connecticut Information Literacy Conference Committee invites you and your
colleagues to submit proposals for general session presentations, panel
discussions, or breakout workshops (45-50 minutes long with a 10-15 minute Q &
A session).  Possible ideas to explore include:
-        Multiple literacies and implications for the future of academic
librarianship
-        Transformative teaching methods such as threshold concepts and 'other
wild ideas'
-        Innovative ways of building community with faculty and students  (e.g.,
marketing, communication, collaboration, and assessment)
-        New 'law and order'  - incorporating  proposed revisions to
ACRL's Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education into
existing programs
-        Bringing it home:  the role of expanding competencies within
articulation policies, including Connecticut State Colleges and Universities'
Transfer and Articulation Policy

Team presenters such as faculty-librarian or librarians from multiple
institutions are highly encouraged to submit a proposal.
For consideration, please submit your name, institution, contact info, a short
bio, title of presentation, and abstract (<150 words) to Joy Hansen at
jhansen@mxcc.edu by March 7, 2014.
Presenters will be notified of proposal acceptance by March 21, 2014.

Critical Media Literacy

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

March 22, 2014
8:00AM-4:00PM
Bone Student Center at Illinois State University
Normal, IL

 

The call for proposals for the Critical Media Literacy conference has been extended until February 14, 2014.

 

This multidisciplinary conference is designed to aid current educational leaders, future teachers, youth, and other concerned citizens in their understanding of the mass media and its impact on the events that shape our daily lives. Promoting critical media literacy is essential to excavating social inequalities and fostering participatory democracy during the 21st century.

 

Conference strands include:

Library Science

Educational Foundations

School(s) of Communication

The Borg Center for Reading and Literacy

 

Paper proposals might address topics such as (but not limited to) the following:

        What are specific ways in which the corporate and political elite uses the mass media to promulgate their ideologies and practices?

        How does the mass media perpetuate divisions amongst social groups across the globe?

        How can teacher educators prepare future teachers by using critical media studies in teacher preparation programs?

        How can educators, youth, and concerned citizens provide more genuine representations of global citizens through their own media products?

        How has media literacy successfully fostered K-20 students' critical engagement with mass media?

        How have various technologies employed by corporate conglomerates in the mass media been used to foster critical understanding and solidarity across the globe, rather than to promote conformity and corporatism?

        How can various critical theories enrich our understanding of the mass media in the age of neoliberalism?

        What are some ways in which media literacy can be applied to the new demands and concerns of today's digitized culture?

        How might library scientists go about training critical media librarians?
