ALISE 2016 has ended
The ALISE 2016 Conference theme of “Radical Change: Inclusion and Innovation” celebrates the far reaching impact of Eliza T. Dresang’s work. The conference welcomes contributions that explore inclusive practices and innovative strategies in teaching and research, with special interest for Cultural Diversity, Digital Societies, Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice and International Resources.

Our logo for the conference is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This is a great symbol of radical change and transformation. Although the caterpillar and the butterfly exist in the same environment, each has its own perception and understanding of the world. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation, it must build the chrysalis, which acts as protection and change agent. When the radical change is completed, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis into a new world, one of amazing potential and opportunity. The radical transformation and change allows the caterpillar to move beyond its small environment as a beautiful butterfly excited and ready to see and learn about its brave new world.

Session 2.1 A Juried Paper: Effecting Radical Change: Understanding High School Principals’ Views of Teacher and Librarian Collaboration

High school principals were surveyed about their experiences with and perceptions of collaboration between classroom teachers and school and public librarians to promote student acquisition of 21st Century Skills. The findings suggest that principals see collaboration as important to student learning, although much more so in the case of teachers and school librarians than with public librarians. Given the key role principal support plays in successful teacher and librarian collaboration, the findings have significant implications for developing an intervention that will lead to improved collaboration between teachers and librarians to teach 21st Century Skills.
