SILC Report
« on: March 26, 2021, 09:35:50 AM »
SILC held it's first antiracist pedagogy workshop on March 18, 2021 about misinformation and implicit bias. We had 34 attendees and received a very positive response. The recording of the workshop will be placed on the SILC Blog in the near future.

SILC has two more antiracist pedagogy workshop this semester: Thursday, April 15 and Thursday, May 13 from 2:00pm–3:30pm. The workshop on April 15 will be an introduction to critical information literacy.

We will be facilitating a SUNYLA Preconference Workshop at the 2021 annual conference. It is titled "Critical Information Literacy: Steps Toward Becoming Antiracist in our Libraries." We hope you attend!

We held community conversations in February & March 2021. The February conversation was BYQ: Bring Your Questions (to ask the group) and we talked about the controversies surrounding the Media Bias Chart created by Vanessa Otero in March. Our next one is scheduled for Wednesday, April 21, 2021 from 1-2pm.

The committee is still developing the open access ebook about library outreach. More on that in the months ahead!
