In March and April 2020, the AMICAL community initiated various conversations about virtual teaching during COVID-19. The Information Literacy Initiatives Committee contributed to this conversation with the virtual forum: Teaching IL Virtually: Your Ideas, Your Practice.
Now that the Spring 2020 semester has concluded, and some time has passed, the Information Literacy Initiatives Committee welcomes back IL AMICAL members to move the conversation forward. Join us as we reflect on our recent virtual teaching experiences and consider upcoming teaching opportunities.
In order to build upon the varied outcomes from this rapid transition to the online IL teaching environment, we will revisit our conversation from April’s virtual forum, and we will pick up the conversation to reflect on what has been done and how we can improve our practices for the future.
To further the initial conversation, IL librarians from different AMICAL institutions will share their recent experiences and highlight their primary challenges, unexpected outcomes, and mapped strategies for future IL teaching within their local context.
Online activities offered during the forum will encourage attendees to discuss and ask questions.
