The ACRL Institute for Information Literacy announces the invitation to
apply for its Immersion '09 Program.  2009 will bring a new structure to
the Immersion Program. Teacher Track and Program tracks will continue to
be offered together in summer 2009, and for the first time, Intentional
Teacher and Assessment tracks will be offered simultaneously in late
fall 2009.  This new schedule blends Immersion programs with similar
formats and lengths to offer a more cohesive Immersion experience.  It
also allows Teacher and Program graduates to continue their experience
by applying for Assessment or Intentional Teacher programs to be held in
the fall.


Applications are now being accepted for Immersion '09 Teacher and
Program Tracks!  December 8, 2008 is the deadline to apply.


TEACHER TRACK. The Teacher Track focuses on individual development for
those who are interested in enhancing, refreshing, or extending their
individual instruction skills. Curriculum includes classroom techniques,
learning theory, leadership, and assessment framed in the context of
information literacy.  Participants selected for the Teacher Track will
prepare a description of an instructional situation and a related
presentation in advance of the Immersion program. 


PROGRAM TRACK. The Program Track focuses on developing, integrating, and
managing institutional and programmatic information literacy programs.
Participants selected for the Program Track will develop individual case
studies in advance of the Immersion program. Change dynamics, systems
thinking, institutional outcomes assessment, scalability, and the
integration of teaching, learning, and technology will be brought to
bear on analyzing the various programmatic challenges presented in the
case studies. Immersion participants will be expected to develop the
case studies into an action plan for implementation at the home



Immersion '09 will be held at the Eckerd College Conference Center and
Lodge in Eckerd, Florida, July 26-31, 2009.
