“Assessment in Action” curriculum design application deadline November 8

ACRL is seeking applications from individuals who wish to participate in developing curriculum for the program “Assessment in Action: Academic Libraries and Student Success” by 5 p.m. Central on November 8, 2012. Are you someone who believes in the power of peer-to-peer learning and communities of practice? Are you skilled as an instructional designer or teacher with a philosophy based in the positive power of experiential learning? If so, you may wish to apply for one of these four positions:

  • One peer-to-peer instructional design expert to advise the curriculum design/facilitation team over a three-month period on approaches for building communities of practice. The successful expert advisor does not need to be an academic librarian or working within the higher education sector.
  • Three curriculum designers/facilitators to participate throughout the length of the 3-year program, virtually and in person, in designing and facilitating the yearlong experience for each of the cohorts. Successful curriculum designers/facilitators must be conversant with issues and challenges of libraries in higher education, and applicants from outside the library profession are invited to apply.

If you have questions about these positions, the Assessment in Action program or ACRL’s Value of Academic Libraries initiative, please contact Kara Malenfant, ACRL Senior Strategist for Special Initiatives, at kmalenfant@ala.org or (312) 280-2510.
