cfp Virtual poster session

The ACRL Instruction Section Conference Planning Committee is calling for information on projects that have "redesigned a library classroom to better align changing pedagogy and student learning". They are having "a Virtual Poster Session that will accompany the panel taking place this summer at ALA Annual [on 27 June] entitled, Aligning Learning Spaces with Pedagogy: The Instruction Librarian’s Role in Classroom Re/Design." "In lieu of designing a formal poster, we ask that you respond to the following questions in your submission, in addition to providing photographs: Describe the finished teaching or classroom space, including any specifics about furniture or technology that was included in the design. What were the goals of the re-design or creation of the space? What strategies did you use to advocate for student learning and active learning pedagogy in the space? What lessons did you learn from this experience that you'd most like to share with someone undertaking a similar project? How have changes you made to the classroom changed your teaching? How have changes you made to the classroom changed your instruction programs?"
Photographs and responses should be emailed to Cindy Fisher at
The deadline for submission is 6 June 6.
