Emne: 2nd call for papers for the 9th Creating Knowledge conference
This is the 2nd call for papers for the 9th Creating Knowledge conference
scheduled for June 6-8 2018 in Vingsted, Denmark. Please find track info and
submission details below.
Please note: Final abstract submission deadline is March 15 2018!
The Creating Knowledge conference was initiated and continues to be sponsored
by Nordinfolit, a Nordic initiative to facilitate the development and sharing
of information literacy solutions, and has been hosted by the Nordic countries
in turn since 1999.
The overarching theme of the 2018 conference will be best practice, and topics
will include new skills, new technologies, and new ways to interact with and
engage our patrons.
We want to look to the future and explore how libraries and the people working
in libraries can continue, in informed and meaningful ways, to contribute to
the creation of knowledge and the facilitation of successful learning in higher
education and beyond.
Track 1: NEW SKILLS
In order to remain relevant in an increasingly democratic and egalitarian
knowledge society where information is floating freely and in abundance and the
algorithms that help us interact with information grow more user-friendly by
the second, we as library professionals are constantly required to grow and
diversify our skills pool. But what are the skills of the future and how do we
go about acquiring them?
Track 2: NEW TECHNOLOGIES
One way to remain on top of our profession is to stay curious about new ways to
interact with and compute information, whether this means adopting new software
or applying existing technology in novel ways. In many cases the acquisition of
new technological insights are serendipitous and unintentional. With the 2ne
track, we wish to provide a platform for purposeful and intentional exploration
of new technologies in a library setting.
Track 3: NEW WAYS TO INTERACT WITH AND ENGAGE OUR PATRONS
Co-creation, UXLIB, and service design all represent attempts to move beyond
the traditional top-down, sometimes even bureaucratic, decision models at play
in libraries. But how do we observe and decipher behaviour and recruit patrons,
how do we leave our preconceptions and habits behind, and what do we hope to
achieve at all?
DFFU & FLIP´D hereby invite contributions on these topics from our colleagues
all over the world.
We encourage all formats, from brief pitches and papers, to hands-on workshops
and open space events. We want the conference contents to be as multifarious as
possible so as to create a both relevant and thrilling learning experience for
If you wish to submit a proposal, please send us a summary of your
contribution, including a description of the intended format, and we will get
back to you to arrange the details after the review process.
