There is a call for proposals for the LOEX 2021 conference (LOEX is the major informaton literacy conference in the USA), which will be held virtually May 11-14 20121. The theme is Information Literacy in a Time of Transformation. The deadline for submissions is 4 December 2020. "Facing the unique social and technological challenges of the present time, we’re approaching our instruction, our libraries, and our world differently. And that asks for an approach to LOEX 2021 that encompasses this transformation"
"This year’s LOEX tracks are: * Pedagogy: Transforming the Classroom * Leadership: Elevating the Field * The Anti-Racist Instructor: Cultivating Inclusion and Belonging * The Value in Failure: From Missteps to Forward Movement * Theory in Practice: Reversing the Paradigm (How have you used educational and critical theory to form the backbone of your instructional design?)* Collaboration: Building Unity in Diversity"
Proposals for 60-minute sessions have to be submitted through an online form. "Successful proposals will showcase effective and innovative library instruction & information literacy practices, provide valuable information that participants can utilize at their libraries, support collaboration, and be applicable to the broad variety of academic institutions."
