CSLA/CUE 2016 Information Literacy Summit

csla & cue

CSLA and CUE were pleased to partner for a third year in a special day-long summit in conjunction with the CUE 2016 National Conference in Palm Springs, CA. The CUE/CSLA Information Literacy Summit took place on Saturday, March 19, 2016 on the last day of the conference. Registration for the Summit was included in all conference registrations, including the Saturday-only rate.

Information literacy – the ability to assess the need for information, access information sources effectively and efficiently, evaluate information for accuracy and quality, and use it appropriately – is a cross-disciplinary skill crucial for college and career readiness and a foundation for lifelong learning. This summit, led by teacher librarians from CSLA and guest teacher librarian speaker, Joyce Valenza, will hone your information literacy skills with which you can empower your students.

While there is no substitute for attending a session, we have included links to the Information Literacy session slides below.
