Southern California Instruction Librarians (SCIL) will be hosting SCIL Works on February 23, 2018. This annual mini-conference offers librarians the opportunity to share their best practices, innovative pedagogy, and creative solutions with colleagues. SCIL Works 2018 will focus on the intersection between instruction and our virtual campus communities.
As libraries continue to move toward and explore all-things-digital, how are instruction librarians meeting the digital and virtual needs of our campus communities? How are we bringing instruction out of the classroom and into virtual spaces? We are seeking proposals for teaching, learning, and best practices that focus on virtual student learning whether it is in the form of digital badges, instructive infographics, amazing libguides, flipped classrooms, or online classes.
Example topics could include:- Instructional design practices for hybrid or fully online classes- Tools used to create flipped classrooms and blended learning- Using digital badges to help motivate student learning- E-learning objects and how they support information literacy- Evaluation of virtual content like fake news or socially constructed information- Performance support and infographics to aid students at their time of need- Virtual reality
We are accepting proposals for presentations in one of three formats:
- Workshop: A 50-minute workshop where the presenter shares best practices and practical applications about a topic that encourages audience participation in the form of engaging discussions or activities.- Presentation: A 20-minute presentation where the presenter shares his/her research or an effective program or practice with participants, with an additional 5 minutes for Q&A.- Lightning Round: A live, 5-minute poster session or slide deck. This presentation could briefly describe a program or initiative, highlight an online tool or tutorial, or exhibit an assessment process or instrument.
Please complete the Proposal Submission Form by 5:00 pm, Friday, December 15th. All submissions will be blind-reviewed by a panel. Presenters will be notified that their submissions have been accepted by December 19th. If you have questions about submitting, please contact Amanda Roth, SCIL Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
