Call for Proposals

 

The 3rd Annual Indiana University Libraries Information Literacy Colloquium seeks engaging, innovative, and energizing proposals related to the conference theme:  Metaliteracy: Seeking Connections and Challenging Traditions.  

We seek thought-provoking proposals that examine metaliteracy, which is emerging as a relevant and interesting paradigm that is reshaping the way we think of information literacy and library instruction. As defined by Mackey and Jacobson (2011), "Metaliteracy promotes critical thinking and collaboration in a digital age, providing a comprehensive framework to effectively participate in social media and online communities. It is a unified construct that supports the acquisition, production, and sharing of knowledge in collaborative online communities. Metaliteracy challenges traditional skills-based approaches to information literacy by recognizing related literacy types and incorporating emerging technologies. Standard definitions of information literacy are insufficient for the revolutionary social technologies currently prevalent online" (p. 62). Moreover, the current ongoing revision of the ACRL standards includes metaliteracy as an "important anchoring element" in the new Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. 

 

This year's Colloquium invites you to investigate the implications metaliteracy has for library instruction theory and practice. Questions to consider include, but are not limited to: What do instruction librarians need to know about metaliteracy? What does metaliteracy look like, and what does it entail? How does it influence what we do in the library instruction classroom? How does this shape our learning outcomes and pedagogy? How do we assess metaliteracy? Clearly, metaliteracy is a stimulating and exciting concept that has much to offer library instruction and we hope that the Colloquium will contribute significant advances to the current conversations on this topic.

 

Proposal guidelines:

Proposals for 45-minute presentations or 45-minute roundtable discussions should be no more than 250 words in length and should contain at least two learning outcomes.  Proposals should be submitted via the online conference proposal form:  http://ius.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_3meTvGpIhLHxiIZ

  

All proposals should clearly relate to the conference theme and offer innovative and interesting insights that will enhance the learning of the Colloquium community.

 

Proposal deadline: 

May 16, 2014. Proposal notifications will occur by May 30, 2014.

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
   * Cognitive, motivational and affective aspects for personalization
    * Practice and experience sharing
