CFP: LOEX Conference 2006 - Moving Targets: Understanding Our Changing Landscapes

CFP: LOEX Conference 2006 - Moving Targets: Understanding Our Changing Landscapes

Welcome to the LOEX Conference 2006: Moving Targets: Understanding Our Changing Landscapes. This is going to be an exciting conference filled with many opportunities to explore how librarians and institutions are dealing with the needs of our users, new forms of technology, literacy competencies, ethical issues and effective professional practices. Participants will be energized by the ideas they hear and challenged to set new goals for managing these moving targets.

At LOEX 2006 we will explore ways that innovative librarians and institutions are coping with a landscape of ‘moving targets.’ Changing populations and audiences, rapidly evolving technology, new paradigms of assessment, and new knowledge about student learning affect everything we do as information literacy educators. Above all, the assumptions we make about who we serve and how we do it are constantly changing.

As librarians work to understand how users learn, what tools and processes they use, and how new forms of pedagogy can engage them, we need to remain flexible in the face of changes that force us to innovate, integrate, and collaborate.

This Conference invites all instruction librarians, and others involved with and interested in instruction, to share their experience and expertise by submitting proposals for a conference concurrent session. We are particularly interested in presentations that address any of the following themes. The questions posed under each theme are examples of questions presentations might address.
