cfp Teaching for Curiosity, Creativity, and Action

There is a call for proposals for the 17th Annual Information Literacy Summit (at Moraine Valley Community College, USA), which takes place April 20 2018 with the theme Teaching for Curiosity, Creativity, and Action. The keynote is Char Booth, Associate Dean of the University Library at California State University San Marcos. "We are seeking presenters to lead engaging and interactive discussions about information literacy and library instruction. We are especially interested in breakout sessions and panels which focus on this year’s theme: Teaching for Curiosity, Creativity, and Action. How might we engage our learners to help them develop curiosity and creativity? What role does information literacy play in taking action and making change in our communities? How might our own teaching practice reflect these dispositions? We hope to foster conversations across all types of libraries, schools, and other organizations and encourage a diversity of perspectives in this proposal call." Topics include: social Justice; Service Learning; Student Curiosity and Creativity; Student Centered Teaching and Learning; Students as creators; Critical Information Literacy; Critical Pedagogies; Reflective Practice; Communities of Practice; Applications of the Framework for Information Literacy; Programmatic assessments; Instructional design.
Breakout sessions and panels are 50 minutes long and should be interactive. Panel discussions should up to 3 panelists. Submission consist of a 200-300 word description of the proposed session. "Please include learning outcomes and a brief explanation of why people should attend your session and what they will take away." Submission deadline is 12 January 2018.
