ACRL IS Inclusive Pedagogy Spring Webinar: Inclusive pedagogical practices in library instruction

  • 1.  ACRL IS Inclusive Pedagogy Spring Webinar: Inclusive pedagogical practices in library instruction

    Posted Mar 04, 2024 11:55 AM

    Dear colleagues, 

     

    You are all invited to this Zoom webinar:

     

    Date and Time: March 27, 2024, 11am PST / 2pm EST

     

    Description: 

    Topics of inclusive pedagogy have a strong connection to the field of education and are usually centered on instruction issues. These connections have strongly influenced LIS practice especially through libraries' information literacy and instruction roles, and the instruction component of reference services. A recent special issue of Reference Services Review, co-edited by Dr. Kawanna M. Bright and Dr. Mónica Colón-Aguirre, focuses on the integration of critical and inclusive pedagogical practices into library instruction and instructional aspects of reference services. 

     

    In this webinar, Drs. Bright and Colón-Aguirre will provide insights into the articles included in the special issue. In addition, a select panel of authors who contributed to the issue will provide personal perspectives on their work and its importance to the field. 

     

    Presenters:

    • Dr. Kawanna M. Bright, Assistant Professor of Library Science, East Carolina University and Dr. Mónica Colón-Aguirre, Assistant Professor, University of South Carolina
