The CARLI Instruction Committee is coordinating its 8th CARLI Instruction Showcase, which features innovative elements in library instruction and assessment. Presenters will demonstrate instruction techniques and tools that are designed to enhance library instruction.

This will be an online Showcase this year.

Seeking Proposals!

Please share this message with anyone in your institution who may be interested in participating.

The CARLI Instruction Committee is seeking presentation proposals for the 8th annual Instruction Showcase on Friday, May 29.

CARLI members are welcome to submit proposals on all library instruction topics, and encouraged to draw inspiration from the committee's theme this year, “Fresh Starts and Restarts: Growing Beyond Your Comfort Zone." Lessons related to the theme might include new approaches to evaluating information, reimagined instruction for improved accessibility, and techniques for teaching new systems such as Primo VE. Of course there is now a great opportunity to share with fellow librarians your experiences focusing on instruction in the time of COVID-19.

Proposals should outline an instruction session activity that supports skills-based or conceptual learning and encourages active student participation. Please include a full lesson plan with your proposal. Attached is a template but feel free to use your preferred format.

  • All lesson plans must include the following elements: topic, learning objectives, materials, activity overview, assessment of student learning, and applicable knowledge practices and/or dispositions from the Framework for Information Literacy. Presenters will be given 15 minutes to present and five minutes for questions and answers. Each breakout room is equipped with a presenter’s station, however, please note that there will not be a computer lab available this year.
  • If interested, please submit the proposal form found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CARLI-Showcase2020 no later than 5pm on Wednesday, April 22.
  • Submissions will be reviewed by the CARLI Instruction Committee; notifications will be sent during the week of April 27.

Please feel free to review the previous Showcase agendas and presentations.
