Join us for a SILC Community Conversation on July 22

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.

Email westb[at]geneseo.edu for the Zoom meeting link.

We hope to see you there!
