Presentation materials

------------------------
Come share your successes and disasters in implementing the new Information Literacy Framework with others in a round table discussion. In the second half of the pre-conference, we’ll hear about where we are a year later in implementing the Framework nationally. What’s worked, what hasn’t worked, and where do we go from here?

During the second half of the workshop, we’ll hear from Kelly and Kenya about their experiences in implementing the Framework at UT Knoxville and where they visualize it will evolve in the future.

Kelly Tilton has an MFA and an MS in information sciences from the University of Tennessee, where she now works as an information literacy instruction librarian. She works alongside a team of other general education librarians, and focuses specifically on information literacy in English composition courses. After working two years with an assessment librarian, she became interested in assessment in addition to user instruction, which led to her close study of the ACRL Framework for Literacy in Higher Education, and she continues to integrate the framework into her teaching and assessment practices. 

 

Kenya Flash is one of two Diversity Resident librarians at University of Tennessee. She has a long-standing focus on instruction, which has been facilitated by a rotation in that department and through previous experience as an adjunct librarian at Wilkes University. Kenya holds a bachelor's degree in government and law from Lafayette College, a master's in political science from East Stroudsburg University, and a master's in library and information sciences from Drexel University. In November 2015, she was appointed the subject librarian for Sociology and Political Science. The framework presents very interesting possibilities for her in both roles at UT, as she will have the ability to utilize it with throughout various parts of the curriculum.
