FINAL Call for Proposals Workshop for Instruction in Library Use - deadline Dec 17, 2010

Workshop for Instruction in Library Use (WILU) 2011 - ‘Learning Under Living Skies’
June 1-3, 2011
Regina, Saskatchewan


The tri-institutional WILU Committee from the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST), the University of Regina, and the University of Saskatchewan invites you to submit proposals to be considered for presentation at WILU 2011. We are very pleased and excited to bring WILU to our province – for the first time ever!

This is also a special year because this will be the 40th annual WILU! Over the decades, it has grown to encompass all aspects of library instruction and the emerging role of librarians as educators. Please visit About WILU 2011 for more information.

The sky looms large over Saskatchewan. It is bold, active and constantly changing - just like learning in libraries. And, as we all know, learning can happen anywhere…the sky's the limit…

Suggested Topics:
-Learning Spaces. Tell us about where learning takes place.
-Who Learns? Tell us about who learns from you.
-Today’s Tools. Tell us about the tools you use.
-Why Teach? Tell us what motivates you to educate others.

Session Types:

Session Presentation
45-minute sessions, preferably grounded in formal research or applied practice, which include a 35-minute presentation and 10-minute discussion or question period.

Lightning Strike Session (with a Display Poster)
5-minute "quick hit" presentations on any topic related to information literacy or library instruction. A poster must accompany the presentation to create a lightning strike display circuit for all attendees.

Hands-on Tools
45-minute or 90-minute computer lab sessions where participants can interact with various online or electronic tools. There are four 24-seat computer labs available for WILU 2011. Other smaller computer labs are available as needed.

Submission Information:

Please submit proposals by December 17, 2010 through the online PDF submission form (you may also submit your proposal directly by email following these instructions).

The primary contact on the proposal will be notified by the end of January 2011 as to whether or not the proposal has been accepted for presentation. Note: proposals will only be reviewed by the committee after all information regarding the presenter’s name and institution has been excluded.
