NELIG Annual Program - June 6, 2014

Teaching Across Difference
NELIG Annual Program, June 6, 2014 @ UMass Dartmouth, North Dartmouth, MA

The annual program is inspired by this year's keynote speaker, Yu-Hui Chen and the article she co-authored with Mary K. Van Ullen, “Helping International Students Succeed Academically through Research Process and Plagiarism Workshops” (
We will share and explore how instruction librarians negotiate the many differences we encounter in our work, be they one-on-one, collaborative or in the classroom. For example, do you have a technique for dealing with a particular difference in your library instruction sessions? How do you incorporate your own differences into teaching information literacy skills to students? What collaborative partnerships have you developed on your campus to accommodate difference into your information literacy program?
Presentations will address differences of:

  • Ability
  • Potential
  • English Language Proficiency
  • Location (Distance/Online)
  • Educational Background (ex: first generation, public/private, adult)
  • Learning Style
  • Culture
