2012 Oregon Information Literacy Summit Call for Proposals
Oregon’s Information Ecology: Cultivating Student Success Along the
Academic Continuum
Saturday May 19, 2012, Chemeketa Community College: Yamhill Valley Campus,

The Information Literacy Advisory Group of Oregon along with the OLA
Library Instruction Round Table, the Oregon Writing and English Advisory
Committee and ACRL-Oregon invite you to submit proposals for the 6th annual
Oregon IL Summit.

Send us your ideas for panels, papers, presentations, round-tables,
workshops on best practices and pilot projects around information
literacy...we would love to hear about your work.

This year’s theme, “Oregon’s Information Ecology:  Cultivating Student
Success Along the Academic Continuum” focuses on growing higher ed’s cash
crop; life-long learners. Of special interest are the relationships that
keep Oregon’s information literacy environment healthy. Tell us about your
interdisciplinary partnerships and fruitful collaborations across
institutions and disciplines. Topics of interest might include ways to
cross-fertilize and expand critical thinking, bridging information literacy
gaps for students as they transition through levels of education,
strategies for addressing a range of student needs within one class or
discipline (less experienced students in a class with more experienced
students), and creative ways to evolve and grow life-long learners all
along the academic continuum.

The day will begin with an update on information literacy in Oregon,
including discussion about the Common Core State Standards and implications
for secondary and higher ed IL programs.

Deadline for submitting proposals is April 20th

Complete the proposal form attached and submit via email to CFP Coordinator:
Pam Kessinger, Portland Community College, pkessing at pcc.edu.
Deadline:  April 20, 2012
