Call for Poster Sessions:  Bringing the Immersion Program Back Home

Saturday July 11, 2009 3:30-5:30

ALA Annual Conference in Chicago 

Alumni of the Institute for Information Literacy Immersion Program are
recognized as leaders in teaching lifelong learning skills, improving
techniques for assessing learning outcomes and in creating environments
of discovery. The four Immersion Tracks are: Teacher Track, Program
Track, Intentional Teacher Track, and the Assessment Track.

The ACRL Immersion Alumni Program Planning Working Group is looking for
individuals or groups who have participated in the Information Literacy
Immersion Program to submit an application for a poster session. The
purpose of the poster sessions will be to provide an informal forum for
the exchange of ideas and research related to the Immersion experience.

Poster presenters will have 30 minutes to present after the 60 minute
panel session.
