2021 Conference

Join us in 2021 for the Library Instruction Tennessee (LIT) Conference!

The theme for LIT 2021 is PERSISTENCE & RESILIENCE.

LIT 2021 will be held virtually during the week of June 7-11.

  • The proposal deadline has passed. Thanks to everyone who submitted!
  • Acceptance notifications by March 5
  • Registration Opens – Late April 2021
  • Price – Free!

We are all looking forward to seeing the LIT community again in June! Please think about and prepare proposals engaging with the theme of PERSISTENCE & RESILIENCE. How are  persistence and resilience characteristics of your practice?  What strategies do you employ to adjust and surmount unexpected or great challenges? What pedagogies, tools, or practices have you considered (or discarded) on your path? What successes resulted from your persistence and/or resilience? How have you been resilient in the face of a perceived failure or setback?

We’d love to see proposals about: 

  • Engagement & Outreach
  • Critical Information Literacy
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Instructional Services
  • Assessment
  • Pedagogy/Andragogy
  • Hiring, Onboarding, and Management in Instructional Services
  • Professional Tips for New Instruction Librarians
  • Reflective Practice, Morale, & Self Care 
  • Technology

We are considering hosting roundtables for the first time. Is there something you’d like to discuss informally with a group of peers?
