Presentations from #WILU2013 (Canadian Information Literacy conference) available

As usual, it looks like there were interesting sessions at the WILU conference that took place last month in Fredericton, Canada. The presentations are up online already. Just a few that caught my eye:
- “You must come see my daughter’s pet deer”: Cultural immersion for effective offshore distance learner support by Marc Bragdon (Distance Education Librarian, University of New Brunswick) (Talks about how Marc changed his approach to that of an embedded librarian in a distance learning course offered to students in Trinidad and Tobago, after actually visiting the country and interviewing students)
- Literacies — Information and beyond: The Learning Commons and the embedding of academic literacy instruction in disciplinary courses by Sophie Bury (Business Librarian and Head, Peter. F. Bronfman Business Library, York University), Ron Sheese (University Professor, York University), Rebecca Katz (Graduate Student, Boston University)
- Lesson Study: Creating a Synchronized Approach to Information Literacy Instruction by Eric Jennings (Assistant Professor, Instruction and Outreach Librarian, University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire) (talks about an approach to teaching IL in a nursing curriculum)
