The US Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Instruction Section has a session planned for the American Library Association conference in Chicago, USA, on July 12 2009. It is called Illuminating New Instruction Research: Applying Research to Practice "Panelists Randy Burke Hensley (Newman Library, Baruch College, City University of New York), Heidi Julien (The University of Alberta), and Michelle Morton (Cañada Community College Library) will conduct a live, semi-improvisational workshop that actively applies recent research findings to the development and improvement of instructional design and practice. The audience will witness the panel thinking aloud, brainstorming, and debating their way through this process. ... You will depart with models for working your own way through research findings in order to pragmatically improve your instructional practice."
