We all know that the learning process is different for each individual. How does one create meaningful instruction to address all of these different learning styles? One might argue that we must take a journey to the source, the human brain. Our conference this year will feature keynote speaker Dr. G. Christian Jernstedt of Dartmouth College, who will focus on the inner workings of the brain, the process of learning, and how librarians can support learning.  

We will also offer a hands-on preconference workshop led by Dr. Jernstedt on Thursday, June 15th. Sponsored in part by the Connecticut Council of Academic Library Directors (CCALD), this half day session will take a look at cognition from a student’s point of view. What takes place in their brains during teaching, and what information is retained once the lesson is over? Dr. Jernstedt will also touch upon topics surrounding student assessment, including what makes it important and best practices to ensure that it is meaningful. Attendance for this half day workshop will be limited to 40 participants.
