The ACRL Institute for Information Literacy is excited to announce the
invitation to apply for its Immersion Program.  2009 brings a new
structure to the Immersion Program.  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 being accepted for Immersion Assessment and Intentional
Teacher tracks.  May 29, 2009, is the deadline to apply.  

ASSESSMENT TRACK. This program is intended for experienced academic
librarians (5+ years teaching experience) active in teaching and
learning and those with leadership roles for information literacy (IL)
program development who want to improve their knowledge and practice of
both classroom and program assessment.  This program will approach
assessment from a learning-centered perspective; participants will
emerge with a broader understanding of assessment and how to use
assessment as an important tool to guide evidence-based classroom,
curriculum, and program development.  Participants will develop a plan
for their assessment activities that will form the basis for future
engagement with these issues both individually and as a leader of IL
initiatives at their institutions. 

INTENTIONAL TEACHER TRACK. This program is aimed at the experienced
academic librarian (5+ years teaching experience, in a library or other
setting) who wants to become more self-aware and self-directed as a
teacher.  This program facilitates the process of critical reflection
through peer discussion, readings, and personal reflection as a pathway
to professional growth and renewal. The program offers a mixture of
structured and co-constructed learning segments, such as peer
discussions, individual reading and reflection times, and
participant-led communities of practice.
