The LIS Educator's Career Life Cycle of Social Responsibility: Issues and Solutions

Tuesday, January 17, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The 2017 ALISE Academy focuses on the strategies that educators can develop as they engage with their community and in social responsibility. Three presenters, who are at different stages of their career lifecycle, share issues and solutions that emerge from their experience as they engage with their community and in social responsibility. They address questions that include: 1) How does one engage in social justice during a tenuous and early stage in her or his career? 2) What are the means to capitalizing one's work later in her or his career? And 3) How does one leave a legacy of community engagement and social responsibility? The Academy provides an opportunity for participants to contribute to developing strategies and solutions to challenges.

Presenters: Julie Hersberger, University of North Carolina, Greensboro; Sujin Huggins, Dominican University; Bharat Mehra, University of Tennessee

This session will be limited to 125 participants, first-come, first-served. Be sure to register for this complimentary session during conference registration.
