We are excited to announce the launch of a year-long campaign to support libraries as they grapple with today's fractured and challenging media landscape. The campaign will include:
- Invited speakers external to the library community on topics such as misinformation, filter bubbles, radicalism, and media literacy.
- An open invitation for speakers from within the Minnesota library community on best practices in information literacy instruction and programming.
- An on-demand collection of resources for libraries.
To see more specifics on this campaign including goals, upcoming events, resources, and partners please visit the dedicated Media Landscapes campaign page at Level Up. Level Up, managed by the Library Professional Development Network (LPDN), offers a Library News Blog with a subscription service to stay up to date on professional development events and information.
As part of the Media Landscapes campaign, we are looking for Minnesota librarians and educators to share their expertise, best practices, and programming ideas around information and media literacy topics. If you are interested in offering a presentation as part of this campaign, please submit a proposal through the Call for Proposals form.
To kick-off this campaign we are happy to offer the following opportunities to learn from experts Renee Hobbs and John Mack Freeman. Both will be offering 1-hour long virtual presentations. See below for more information or to register.
