Online course: Engaging with the #ACRLFramework

From 16 October 2017 to 17 November 2017 there is a new online course: Engaging with the ACRL Framework: A Catalyst for Exploring and Expanding Our Teaching Practices. The website says: "The ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education - with its emphasis on self-reflective and lifelong learning and on conceptual understandings about information, research, and scholarship and encouraging - has prompted many librarians to consider their teaching practices from fresh angles, as they explore their evolving instructional roles within and beyond the library classroom. [... ] In this online course, participants will explore concepts and pedagogical approaches outlined in the Framework and their significance to their own instructional work. Participants will apply their learning and reflection to creating instruction plans for their local contexts and considering possibilities for growing teaching partnerships." Activities are mostly asynchronous. There is a certificate if you complete the course, including some specific activities. Fees are: ACRL member: US $135; ALA member: $175; Nonmember: $205; Student: $75. More information at http://www.ala.org/acrl/onlinelearning/engagingwiththeacrlframework
