"
Revising, Refreshing, Reframing our Practice: Information Literacy, Threshold Concepts, and the New ACRL Framework"

Program
This year's theme is "Revising, Refreshing, Reframing our Practice: Information Literacy, Threshold Concepts, and the ACRL Framework," and will feature a keynote presentation by 

Amy R. Hofer, Reference & Instruction Librarian and Assistant Professor at Portland State University

Silvia Lu, Reference and Social Media Librarian and Assistant Professor at LaGuardia Community College, a CUNY institution

Lori Townsend, Learning Services Coordinator for the University Libraries at the University of New Mexico

When introduced to threshold concepts, librarians usually ask “How do I use them?” Yet this question hopscotches another: “Do I understand threshold concepts and how they relate to information literacy?” Threshold concepts are themselves a threshold concept. They are transformative, integrative, irreversible, bounded, troublesome, and – importantly – they take time to traverse. With ACRL’s shift toward more conceptual teaching in the new Framework for Information Literacy, our profession needs to take time to deeply understand what this kind of teaching and learning is all about. We’ll talk about the theory of threshold concepts and making incremental moves towards conceptual teaching and assessment, including how to incorporate the work that instruction librarians already do in this arena and why traditional bibliographic instruction still has a place in our teaching repertoire.
