ACRL’s Institute for Information Literacy Immersion ‘06 in Boston a few days ago and I am dripping wet after being thoroughly immersed in Information Literacy for nearly a full week. It was an intense, but great experience. Not only did I learn a lot, but my perception of Information Literacy has changed and I’ve gotten so many ideas I want to try out.
I participated in the Program Track and our final product was an Action Plan to bring home. While my Action Plan still needs some work, it lays out some goals that I believe we can achieve within the next year.
Some pics from Immersion are available at www.flickr.com/groups/acrlimmersion2006/. Most of these pics are from the Teacher Track, but it still gives you good idea of what the whole program is like.
I’m still working on my summaries of events, but those will likely appear shortly.
