CCLI 2013: “Information Literacy in the Real World”

Friday, April 5, 2013   9am – 3:30pm at San Jose State University Library

What does information literacy look like beyond the classroom? Critical thinking empowers students to make sound decisions about employment, health, and social justice issues. How do you demonstrate the long term value of information literacy beyond helping students academically? This spring, California Conference on Library Instruction (CCLI) invites you to participate in a one-day conference on teaching strategies and technological tools for helping students apply information literacy and critical thinking to their daily lives. The program will explore the application of Information Literacy — both within the walls of our library as well as outside — as we work towards innovative, effective, and engaging teaching techniques for face-to-face and on-line instruction.For more information go to:
