SIE 1: Education for the Information Professions
Education for the Information Professions
This session is organized by ALISE as the first inter-association (ALISE, ASIS&T, iSchools) session at the iConference. This follows on similar panels (different topics) presented at the 2017 ASIS&T conference, the 2018 ALISE conference, and scheduled for the 2018 ASIS&T conference, as well as earlier discussions on the topic of education for the information professions at various conferences. This session is intended to be one of several avenues for cooperation among these three disciplinary associations. This SIE session will consist of a focused discussion on education for the information professions, to identity areas of agreement, common challenges and issues, and to generate ideas and creative approaches to teaching and learning in the information fields. The purpose is to focus on high-level questions and issues, rather than specific pedagogical techniques or concerns.
