Preconference - CLA 2007 in St. John's
tick tick tick
The deadline is approaching for preconference proposals for the CLA conference 2007. (Actually we've been granted an extension to September 5).
I know that the timing is horrendous for those working in schools / colleges / universities! But if you would like to comment and/or add speaker ideas, please comment on this blog.
Here are some titles / themes:
- Forget the information literacy theory: voices from the trenches
- Has Information Literacy Failed?
- Information Literacy in Canada: Where do we go from here?
- Information Literacy: Why the disconnect?
Perhaps my somewhat gloomy ideas (they're really not) come from my (mostly) agreement with a recent article by Peter James Williams.
If there's enough interest or ideas and volunteers I'll get the ball rolling on a proposal.
