Engaging with the ACRL Framework

Throughout this workshop participants will explore concepts and pedagogical approaches outlined in the Framework and their significance to their own instructional work. Attendees will apply their learning and reflection to creating instruction plans for their local contexts and considering possibilities for growing teaching partnerships. More specifically, participants will:

  • Recognize the overarching goals and the major components of the Framework and what theories influenced the document's creation.
  • Reflect on their personal perspectives on and experiences with the Framework and how these influence their engagement with the document.
  • Examine their unique institutional and instructional contexts and the possibilities and constraints these contexts present for their pedagogical work,
  • Apply principles of instructional design to develop instruction that is centered on the Frames and that fosters learning transfer and metacognition.
  • Explore the unique knowledge and experiences that librarians bring to teaching and learning and their implications for expanding librarians' instructional roles and partnerships.
  • Explore how the Framework can be used to foster dialogue and collaboration among educators.
