2019 Panelists

We're excited to feature what we're calling a "Deep Dive" Panel of experts on an emerging literacy or pedagogy related to library instruction. This year's panel will address News Literacy. It's going to be great. Here's who we'll hear from this year:

Stephanie Willen Brown, Director of Park Library, UNC School of Media and Journalism.

Stephanie teaches news literacy skills to UNC undergraduates, K-12 students, senior citizens, and other community members, and provides news literacy teacher training for UNC faculty and North Carolina high school journalism teachers.

Lara Herzella Fountaine, Student Success and Engagement Librarian, NC State University Libraries.

Lara engages students early and throughout their time at the university, focusing on core information and data literacies as well as emerging digital and technological literacies to help students develop lifelong learning and research skills. She is currently working with colleagues to plan a 1-credit course on (Dis)Information to be offered in Spring 2020.

Rosalind Tedford, Director of Research & Instruction Services, and Hu Womack, Outreach & Instruction Librarian, both of Wake Forest University.

Roz and Hu teach a super popular elective course, LIB290, “Fake News, Junk Science, and Fact-Checking,” as well as lifelong learning classes on news literacy topics for the Wake Forest University community.

Lightning Talks

We're excited to hear from the community. Have something to say about news literacy, inclusive teaching, privacy, data literacy, primary source literacy, critical library instruction, or anything else you’d like to share with instruction librarian colleagues? Consider giving a lightning talk! Talks will be around 5-7 minutes, depending on the number of accepted proposals. We highly encourage proposals from early career librarians.

First consideration will be given to proposals submitted by November 14th. All respondents will be notified by November 22nd.
