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

Examples related to the theme include online instruction, alternatives to one-shot instruction, or student engagement techniques.

 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.
