  • From: California Conference on Library Instruction <cclibinstruction@xxxxxxxxx>
  • To: baisl@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
  • Date: Fri, 13 Feb 2015 19:39:23 -0800

*When: Friday, April 17, 2015*

Rohnert Park, CA 94928*

*Early Bird Registration Deadline: March 17, 2015*

*Final Registration Deadline: April 9, 2015*

The program, *“Teaching and Reaching Your Students in Environments of Rapid
Change,”* will explore new and practical ways to craft innovative
experiences for learners. Think about the buzz words of today: maker, hack,
design, engage community, framework, scalable, ethical, sustainable, etc.
These are some of the ways librarians are working with library instruction.
We are very pleased to conduct our conference in the Sonoma State
University Campus Cooperage. While there, make sure to visit the awesome
Sonoma State University Library at the Jean and Charles Schulz Information

 *Our keynote speaker is Terry Doyle*

Terry Doyle is an author, nationally recognized educational consultant, and
Professor of Reading at Ferris State University where he has worked for the
past 38 years. His presentation will discuss how findings from the last
fifteen years of neuroscience, cognitive science and biology research point
clearly to a new paradigm for student learners. This new paradigm requires
students to both prepare their brains for learning and learn to apply the
findings on how the human brain learns best to their learning and studying
practices. The specific actions students need to take to adopt this new
paradigm will be shared in this talk.
