Sunday, January 26, 2020
1:00 PM – 2:30 PM
Location: Pennsylvania Convention Center
With major elections, a decennial census, and increasing community activism set for 2020, the demand for civics instruction and information dissemination is crucial. Adult learners bring a variety of experiences to civic engagement, from longtime voters to new citizens or young adults voting for the first time. Due to these diverse perspectives, providing instruction in these areas can be especially challenging. In this discussion forum, participants will identify ways to incorporate information literacy in civic engagement instruction for adult learners in a variety of library settings.
