Description: This critical discussion is for the skeptic, the optimist, the social justice advocate, and those who are just plain curious about the ACRL Information Literacy Framework for Higher Education. Current and former Instruction Roundtable (IRT) Co-chairs will facilitate a discussion about the Framework centering around questions like:
–How does the Framework differ from the Standards?
–What challenges and opportunities does the Framework present for academic librarians?
–Can the Framework be used as a tool for social justice? In what ways does it fall short?
In this interactive session, participants will be invited to share their perspectives and experience with the Framework. We will end the discussion with an invitation to participate in a 23 Things: ACRL IL Framework Edition that IRT is developing and will launch at ARLD Day.
