A reminder about next week's (Tuesday) Virtual Info Lit Drop-in Learning Space session, including registration info - please see below. Thank you to everybody who has already registered!

The Atlantic Provinces Library Association’s Information Literacy Interest Group invites you to attend the Virtual Info Lit Drop-in Learning Space. This is an opportunity for those interested in information literacy instruction and practices to meet others with varied instruction experience to connect and share pedagogies, activities, and techniques. We are aiming to host three virtual drop-in spaces throughout the year.

The second drop-in will be held on Tuesday, November 22, 12:00-1:00pm AST. Feel free to bring your lunch!

The theme for this drop-in session is Persuading Clients to Update Their Favourite Resources. We will be sharing stories about offering newer or different resources to clients. Some like the same old same old, but are there more socially relevant fiction books to discover, or more accurate and diverse information sources to use? We'll talk about our experiences shaking things up and updating lesson plans, reading lists, and information resources. We will also seek constructive feedback from fellow participants. You can share as much or as little as you feel comfortable sharing, and if you just want to listen to other participants' stories, that is fine, too. This session is meant to be a safe space with the goal of encouraging and empowering fellow information professionals in their teaching journey.

You do not have to be currently employed as an information professional to participate in this session, nor does your teaching experience that you would like to share have to be from information literacy instruction sessions. All teaching experience is relevant, as it shapes individuals as educators. Students are welcome to participate!

Google Meet meeting information will be sent to you closer to the session date.
