    The MDMLG Professional Development Committee has received funding from the NN/LM GMR to host the MLA webinar, “Applying the ACRL Information Literacy Framework to Your Teaching” on January 15, 2020 from 2:00-3:30 pm EST.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn how to integrate threshold concepts into your courses, guest lectures, one-shot sessions, and any other form of teaching you do. As part of the webinar you’ll develop learning outcomes for a class assignment, and you’ll begin to integrate threshold concepts into your instruction using active learning strategies and classroom assessment techniques.

    Learning Outcomes -- By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

    •Apply strategies to integrate threshold concepts into their instruction
    •Employ a set of best practices to develop learning outcomes.
    •Identify techniques to assess student progress in mastering information literacy concepts

    Registration: To register for the live event or to view the recording, please complete the online registration form. We will not be hosting a live viewing of the webinar.

    As per usual, access codes will be provided on a first come, first served basis to the first 25 member registrants. If multiple registrants from the same institution register, you may be asked to pair up to view the webinar at your site. As this is a benefit for our membership, MDMLG members will receive CE priority.

    If you have any questions, please contact Ella Hu, member of the MDMLG Professional Development Committee, at fo6572@wayne.eduor (313) 577-8943.

    MDMLG History Web Site

    Have you ever wondered who the previous MDMLG presidents are?  Looking for the name of a speaker at one of our previous meetings?  Need to know the exact name and date of a MDMLG CE class for your CV or AHIP application?

    The answers to all of these questions (and more!) can be found on the MDMLG History web page.  http://www.mdmlg.org/mdmlg-history.htm

    We are celebrating the 20-year anniversary of our MDMLG web site this year!  The site began in 1999, and most of our information (executive board, committee rosters, meeting minutes, treasurer reports, etc.) date back to 1999.  The Nominating Committee slates and election results go back to 1970.  And the Newsletter index dates back to 1989. 

    Take a walk back through MDMLG history.  You’ll come across names of people that you haven’t thought about in years.  And it’s always fun to look at old photos –
