Celebrating a Successful WILU 2017 Conference

No comments :
From May 23 to 25, the University of Alberta Libraries was honoured to host WILU 2017, a conference for library professionals on teaching and instruction. Librarians are active teachers in both academic and public library settings. Librarians teach research strategies, use of special resources and information literacy skills.

WILU (Workshop for Instruction in Library Use) is a national Canadian conference that is hosted in a different Canadian city every year. This year's keynotes were Dr. Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair who presented on Appropriation or Appreciation: How to Engage Indigenous Literatures and Jessie Loyer whose presentation was entitled Librarians, wâhkôhtowin, and information literacy instruction: building kinship in research relationships. Livestream recordings of both keynotes can be found on the keynote page of the WILU 2017 website.

During the conference our social media team logged 39,400 twitter impressions. In addition to attending sessions, attendees shared a lot of thoughtful information and fun photos.

Here is a little story that showcases some highlights from this year's WILU and best of luck to University of Ottawa as they start planning for WILU 2018!
