CARL 2016 Conference Panel
If you're attending the CARL 2016 Conference, join us for the SCIL Panel, How do we advocate for underrepresented students?: A panel on how critical pedagogy and social justice value the student experience. The panel is on Friday April 1, 2016, 1 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.
This panel will discuss how critical pedagogy can provide a framework for social justice not only in the library classroom, but also within the library, its resources, and services. The way our communities and students will view librarians and libraries in the future depends on how we reassert the value of student experiences in the learning process and how we advocate for safe spaces that support experimental thinking, creative learning, and open dialogue.
