Associated with  ACRL Homepage

The ACRL Information Literacy Immersion Program is an intensive 4½-day program held at Loyola University in Chicago. The program provides participants with an opportunity to get away from the day-to-day pressures of our work, reflect on the big issues facing librarianship, and develop new relationships with colleagues from institutions around the world.

The Immersion curriculum challenges you to:

  • Reflect on various conceptions of information literacy and develop and apply a personal and, when applicable, shared understanding of information literacy
  • Examine the educational role of librarians in higher education
  • Engage with theories of influence, change, and leadership
  • Examine and question underlying assumptions about teaching and learning
  • Develop anti-racist practices and pedagogies that can be employed in the classroom and beyond
