MIX Conference 2018

MIX Conference 2018

Save the Date! Friday, August 17, 2018

Location: Charles Stewart Mott Library on the Campus of Mott Community College, Flint, Michigan

The MiALA Instruction and Information Literacy Interest Group and Mott Community College Librarians have partnered to host the 4th Biennial MIX Conference (Michigan Instruction Exchange)

We invite our fellow academic library instructors from across the state to join us in this continuing conversation about student engagement and library instruction.

Let's talk about Connections. How do we connect with each other, our students, our campuses, and beyond?

The conference will begin with a keynote address from Dr. Reva Curry, Vice President of Instruction and Learning Services at Delta College.
Connections: Emerging Relationships between College Librarians, Faculty, Staff, and Administration
Higher Education professionals are challenged to make connections across divisions, departments, and work units to integrate our services and resources into a seamless network of support. The Higher Learning Commission ranks institutional systems as reactive, systematic, aligned or integrated, with the latter being the most desirable yet the most difficult to achieve. The benefits and challenges of creating and sustaining relationships between College Librarians, Faculty, Staff, and Administration in a climate of change in higher education is explored.
