TIME CORRECTION for Webinar: Introduction to the ACRL Instruction Section's Inclusive Pedagogy Toolkit

  • 1.  TIME CORRECTION for Webinar: Introduction to the ACRL Instruction Section's Inclusive Pedagogy Toolkit

    Posted Mar 09, 2023 11:53 AM

    Dear colleagues, 


    You are all invited to this Zoom webinar:


    Date and Time: March 31, 1-2pm PST / 3-4pm CST

    My last post included a time mistake of 3-4pm EST but it is actually 3-4pm CST.


    Description: Last year, a group of ALA Emerging Leaders Class of 2022 created the ACRL Instruction Section's Inclusive Pedagogy Toolkit on behalf of the ACRL Instruction Section. 


    Join the Instruction Section Inclusive Pedagogy Committee for this interactive webinar to learn how to examine, reflect on, and act to mitigate personal bias in instructional library settings to create an inclusive practice. The creators of the Toolkit will walk participants through a general understanding of Inclusive Pedagogy, the deliberate scaffolding of the Toolkit, and applicable tools for instruction that will prompt participants to think critically about their own classrooms and instructional interactions.
