Call for proposals: Innovative Library Classroom

There is a call for proposals (deadline 25 November 2019) for the The Innovative Library Classroom (TILC) 2020, taking place June 4-5 June 2020 in Williamsburg, VA, USA. The theme is Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Are Not Synonyms. "Although the acronym EDI may imply that equity, diversity, and inclusion are one entity, each has value on its own. While equity, diversity, and inclusion inform each other, we need to understand and address each concept individually in order to create meaningful educational experiences that can benefit all of our students. DeEtta Jones summarizes the distinctions with this comparison, “[I]f your organization is a sports stadium, diversity would ask, ‘Who is at the game?’ Inclusion would ask, ‘Are everyone’s seats comfortable?’ Finally, equity would ask, ‘Has anyone been left out of the park? If so, why?’” You can propose posters, presentations, and 7-minute lightning talks. Full info at: http://theinnovativelibraryclassroom.weebly.com/
