OLA Preconference: Metacognition and Reading Strategies

Teaching librarians! See this great opportunity:

ACRL-Oregon and the OLA Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) are co-sponsoring a preconference session at this year’s Oregon Library Association Conference in Eugene, OR that will be of interest to teaching librarians across the state!  You can sign up for an OLA preconference even if you’re not planning to attend the full OLA Conference (and only pay the $55 for the preconference)!

Wednesday, April 18th 1pm-5pm

Portland Community College librarian (and ILAGO board member) Pam Kessinger will lead a panel along with faculty from PCC’s Developmental Education program to explore Metacognition and Reading Strategies to Bridge Students Toward Inquiry. Librarians will learn how to use the Reading Apprenticeship framework as well as our own ACRL Framework for Information Literacy to develop meaningful information literacy instruction and student reflection. This session is co-sponsored with the Library Instruction Round Table.

After the preconference session, join your ACRL colleagues from 5:00-7:00pm for the ACRL-Oregon Reception at the First National Taphouse. We hope to see you there!
