The CARLI Instruction Committee is seeking presentation proposals for the fifth annual Instruction Showcase on Thursday, June 15, at National Louis University in Wheeling, IL.

CARLI members are welcome to submit proposals on all library instruction topics, and encouraged to draw inspiration from the committee's theme this year, "Evolving Library Instruction: Negotiating Change in Uncertain Times". Examples related to the theme include online instruction, alternatives to one-shot instruction, or student engagement techniques. Each breakout room is equipped with a presenter’s station, however, please note that there will not be a computer lab available this year.

Proposals should outline an instruction session activity that supports skills-based or conceptual learning and encourages active student participation. Please include a full lesson plan with your proposal. All lesson plans must include the following elements: topic, learning objectives, materials, activity overview, assessment of student learning, and applicable knowledge practices and/or dispositions from the Framework for Information Literacy. Presenters will be given 15 minutes to present and five minutes for questions and answers.

If interested, please submit the proposal form found here no later than Friday, April 7. Submissions will be reviewed by the CARLI Instruction Committee; notifications will be sent during the week of May. Please send any questions about the Instruction Showcase to
