The program 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.

Our keynote speaker is Terry Doyle! Terry 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

Featured presentations include:
