cfp 3rd Annual LILi Conference: “What Would it Look Like If…?”

There is a call for proposals for the 3rd Annual LILi (Lifelong Information Literacy) Conference, which takes place 8 August 2016 at Pierce College, Woodland Hills, CA, USA. The topic is What Would it Look Like If…?
"Imagine having unlimited resources for developing information literacy and lifelong learning opportunities in your library or in partnership with others. That’s right…just imagine! Oftentimes, librarians protest that the primary obstacle to developing that great idea, program, or service is a lack of funding, staff or some other needed resource. While this is certainly a genuine concern, what if those barriers were removed and the only things required for success were a bit of ingenuity, motivation, and collaboration? The purpose of this year’s conference is to encourage librarians to
explore innovative ideas, creative solutions, and imaginative applications for cultivating information literacy competencies across a lifetime.  ... Let’s have fun and pretend the sky is the limit!"

20 minute and 10 minute presentations are called for.  The deadline is may 1 2016. "Topic ideas include, but are not limited to:• Collaborative or creative ILI partnerships among academic, K-12, public and special libraries • Creative fundraising and ways to obtain needed resources • Marketing, publicity & promotion for collaborative ILI • Establishing ILI connections and partnerships • Assessment of ILI partnership efforts • New, innovative ILI pedagogical approaches • Sequential ILI across two or more institutions or organizations • ILI co-teaching • Common Core Standards and/or California State Standards • ACRL Framework for Information Literacy and/or ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards • AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner • DigitalLearn.org (PLA site) and/or DigitalLiteracy.gov (US government site) • Effective uses of new technology to support ILI • Outreach for successful transfer and transitions from high school to college • Working with classroom teachers in developing ILI"
