The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) has opened application for its Immersion’14 Program, 19-22 November, to be held in Nashville, USA. You must apply by 2 May 2014. Both tracks are aimed at academic librarians with 5+ years of teaching experience. "The Assessment Track is intended for [those] ... who want to improve their knowledge and practice of both classroom and program assessment. Participants will emerge with a broader understanding of assessment and how to use assessment as an important tool to guide evidence-based classroom, curriculum and program development. Participants will develop a plan for their assessment activities that will form the basis for future engagement with these issues both individually and as a leader of IL initiatives at their institutions." "The Intentional Teaching Track ... facilitates the process of critical reflection through peer discussion, readings and personal reflection as a pathway to professional growth and renewal. The program offers a mixture of structured and co-constructed learning segments such as peer discussions, individual reading and reflection times and participant-led communities of practice."
