LVAIC Information Literacy Symposium

The LVAIC Information Literacy Symposium is the primary event of the LVAIC Information Literacy Learning Community. This learning community creates professional development opportunities for LVAIC faculty, librarians, and staff to collaboratively address information literacy needs and challenges across all LVAIC institutions. This community brings together individuals and institutions to share our common– as well as our unique–ideas, challenges, and opportunities to better leverage our expertise toward improving student learning across LVAIC campuses.

6th Annual LVAIC Information Literacy Symposium – virtual

On Wednesday, May 18, 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. EDT, the Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges (LVAIC) Information Literacy Learning Community will host a virtual chat entitled, “An Information Literacy Challenge: Getting Students to Ask Good Questions.” In this discussion, Barbara Fister,  a well-known information literacy advocate and Residence at Project Information Literacy (PIL), will discuss her latest essay, “Principled Uncertainty: Why Learning to Ask Good Questions Matters More than Finding Answers,” which was published on February 16, 2022 in the Project Information Literacy Provocation Series. The event is limited to 75 – 85 librarians, faculty, and staff, who register in advance here. Kelly Cannon, Scholarly Communication Librarian at Muhlenberg College’s Trexler Library, will host the 50-minute session.

Following the discussion, LVAIC librarians will share instructional activities that facilitate student inquiry and participants will have opportunities to share their own instructional practices that get students to ask good questions. Programming will continue until 11:00 a.m.
