This spring, California Conference on Library Instruction (CCLI) invites you to participate in a one-day conference on innovative and alternative instruction models. We will explore programs such as the flipped classroom (moving lecture to the home environment and bringing homework into the classroom through active learning), active learning communities (a group of people who share commonalities and are actively engaged in learning together), emerging Library Research Assistant Technicians positions (specially trained students who provide peer research support) and strategies to sustain instruction programs.
8:15am Registration table opens in the main lobby
April Cunningham is Instruction Coordinator Librarian at Palomar College in San Marcos, CA. Her current scholarship includes innovative pedagogy, faculty collaborations, and library working conditions. She will be speaking on strategies to sustain instruction programs.

A flipped classroom is a form of blended learning where students learn new content, usually at home, and what used to be homework is now done in class with teachers offering guidance and interacting with students.
Breakout Session 2
Learning Communities Discussion: Marcus Banks
A learning community (LC) is a group of students who take a common set of courses together or share a common experience around their academics.
Social Justice Panel: David Silver and Kim Morrison
As librarians, we know that intellectual freedom, education, and democracy are among the most important of our profession’s foundational principles. Librarians can play a vital role in advancing the cause of social justice.
