With the fall semester right around the corner, the SUNYLA Information Literacy Committee (SILC) is hosting an Ed Tech Showcase on August 10, 11, and 12, 2020 (from 10:00am to 2:00pm EST) via Zoom. The showcase will feature up to 12 technology demonstrations that last ~45 minutes in length. Our intention is to record these sessions and place them on this blog for your reference.
SILC is soliciting proposals from members interested in sharing an educational technology tool or program they have found helpful for engaging students in information literacy in virtual or face-to-face environments. Submit a proposal by completing this Google form by Monday, August 3, 2020.
There will be a schedule of events with Zoom links sent out to the SUNYLA-L discussion list once the schedule is finalized.
Any questions can be directed to westb[at]geneseo.edu.
The SUNYLA Information Literacy Committee will be holding an informal community conversation next week on Wednesday, July 22 from 1-2pm via Zoom. We plan to discuss active learning strategies for synchronous and physically-distanced instruction. If you have examples of how you have promoted active learning in one of these contexts, we’d love to hear about it!
We will not be recording this meeting, so that participants can feel comfortable speaking frankly about any concerns they might have.

Have you ever wished that you had more time to engage with teaching faculty and other instructors at your institution about information literacy in a more in-depth way? In this panel presentation, librarians from four different institutions will share their experiences working with information literacy-focused faculty learning communities.
There was a last minute cancelation and our talk with Christine Faraday has been postponed until a new date can be scheduled. Filling in last minute, Carleen Huxley presented a short talk on her experience teaching a college success course with an information literacy emphasis.
