ACRL/IS Professional Education Committee

Charge

The committee encourages the development of professional education for library school students and librarians with instruction-related responsibilities. The committee is also responsible for promoting instruction-related professional education opportunities via Instruction Section communication outlets by investigating current learning opportunities available in conferences, associations and institutes in both the United States and Canada.  Every three years the “Continuing Education Needs and Interest Survey” is conducted among the membership for feedback about professional education.  The committee collaborates with other IS and ACRL committees as appropriate to help support the professional development goals of the Instruction Section.
