cfp #WILU2015

There is a call for papers for the WILU (Canadian Information Literacy) conference. It will be held June 15-17 2015 in St. John’s, Newfoundland. The conference theme is Sea Change: Transforming Learning. "The phrase “sea change” is rich with meaning: the OED defines it as an “alteration or metamorphosis [or] a radical change”. The ideas of change, growth, and transformation are central to WILU, where librarians come together to learn and grow as educators, and where we are inspired through our teaching to help transform others. Our theme also points to important changes currently taking place in our profession with the emergence of the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education - a framework built on the idea of transformative learning. For WILU 2015, we invite proposals that are inspired in various ways by the ideas of growth, change, and transformation; that bring us together to explore changes that we have either experienced or inspired, and to examine the transformations that are taking place around us." There are various presentation options (talks, posters, workshops etc.) Deadline for proposals is Monday, December 1, 2014.
