#ACRLFramework videos

There are numerous webinars about the ACRL Information literacy Framework, and often these are available as recordings after the webinar. To mention some of them (and giving embeds of 2 of them):

- Lori Townsend and Silvia Lu: Threshold Concepts and Information Literacy: This was an AMICAL Webinar (“AMICAL is an international consortium of American-model, liberal arts institutions of higher learning located outside the United States.”) https://youtu.be/FpyQa9W7Nuk

- There was a webinar introducing an ACRL book. The webinar was: ACRL Presents... “Teaching Information Literacy Threshold Concepts ” recorded at https://youtu.be/T1Hr-toTfgM The book is: Bravender, P., McClure, H. and Schaub, G. (Eds) (2015). Teaching Information Literacy Threshold Concepts: Lesson Plans for Librarians. ACRL. http://www.alastore.ala.org/detail.aspx?ID=11471

- ACRL DLS (Distance Learning SIG): The Research as Inquiry Framework in Distance Education Courses. Recording from November 12, 2015

- ACRL SLILC (Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee): Big Picture Theory and the Practical Classroom: Threshold Concepts and Information Literacy Instruction. Also recorded in November 2015.

I also can't resist mentioning a perspective on the framework using the Youtube Hitler meme (mainly because it mentions my name early on - look out for the reference to "Webber" - Bill Johnston and I had indeed taken a more constructive view of the Framework than did the ECIL (European conference on Information Literacy) invited speaker who is being alluded to). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pxs0PRkumHo
