Panel discussion post from ACRL Instruction Section: Whiteness, inclusion, and #infolit
The questions they address are: (1) What can the library and information science researchers and/or information literacy instructors gain from exploring theories and methods from outside traditional library science? (2) From your personal experiences, what approaches have been most effective in improving the inclusivity of your information literacy instruction? (3) Why is it important for information literacy instructors to understand their own racial identities? (4) How do you see Whiteness impacting discussions of information literacy? Do you see understandings changing? (5) What for you are the most interesting current developments in library information literacy instruction research? (6) What advice would you give to librarians who are trying to formulate their own research agenda?
