  • Committee is in favor of doing another Twitter chat, using the same hashtag.
    • Planning to do fewer questions and to publish the questions ahead of time, so people can be prepared to participate.
    • Possible focus for next chat is on specific strategies/resources/examples for inclusive classrooms.
  • The format for the Instruction Showcase is going to be lesson plans in the morning and a workshop in the afternoon.
    • We will not pursue a panel presentation, except as a backup if we can’t find someone to lead a workshop.
  • For our podcast series, each podcast will have one of the original podcasters, a CARLI committee member, and the person we’re interviewing.
    • Mackenzie will be the committee member unless anyone else expresses interest.


  • CARLI now has a fully signed contract with ExLibris for Alma.
  • There have been a number of new events (Change Management forum, OER open call) announced recently that may be of interest to our members.

Tasks assigned:

  • PDF from the Twitter chat will be posted on the CARLI website by Debbie.
  • Once both spring webinar presenters have been confirmed, Lorna/Debbie will reach out to spring webinar presenters to get releases and schedule technology check times.
  • Marielle will confirm space at North Park for Instruction Showcase on May 23.
  • Matt and Amy will work on the wording for the call for proposals for the Instruction Showcase.
  • Mackenzie will email our podcast partners to get firm dates on when our podcasts will be recorded.
