Inclusion: Teaching, Terms, and Community (ALL-SIS)


Tuesday, December 8, 2020 (12pm - 1:30pm US/Central)


The ALL-SIS Continuing Education Committee is happy to announce Inclusion: Teaching, Terms, and Community, a series of webinars focused on how specific issues of equity and inclusion are being recognized and addressed by academic law libraries.

The first event in our series is Letís Talk: A Necessary Conversation about Equity and Inclusion in Remote Instruction. This conversation with the experts will feature perspectives from within and outside of the law library in order to identify the challenges and successes of remote teaching in the context of equity and inclusion. What does it mean to have an inclusive online classroom? How do we ensure equity and inclusion when moving from in person to remote instruction? What are we doing right, and what do we need to improve? Following the panel discussion and Q&A, we will break into small groups to continue the conversation and share our own thoughts and experiences (optional).

The speakers will include:

-- Moderator: Ron Wheeler, Director of Fineman & Pappas Law Libraries, Boston University
-- Raquel Gabriel, Director of the Law Library, CUNY School of Law
-- Zanada Joyner, Senior Reference Librarian, NC Central University School of Law
-- Joshua Abreu, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence and Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology, Albertus Magnus College
-- A law student

Please join us for this important conversation on Tuesday, December 8, 12:00-1:30 PM Central.

This webinar is open to all AALL members. Register now.
