Sharon Sample, Assistant Librarian at Quincy University, co-presented at the Illinois Association of College & Research Libraries (IACRL) meeting on March 16, 2012, and at the Information Literacy Summit held at Illinois State University on April 30, 2012.
The IACRL's conference theme, "Adapt, Adopt, Accelerate," focused on technologies and their possible implementations. Ms. Sample and three of her ILEAD U teammates, Amy Brokaw, Tammy Sayles and Leslie Starasta, presented their highly anticipated interactive game to promote lifelong learning research skills.
At the Information Literacy Summit, Ms. Sample and her colleagues presented a session on increased gaming in libraries and how gaming can promote lifelong learning skills, as well as their ILEAD U project. While the interactive game is still in Beta phase, they anticipate a launch date in mid-summer, 2012.
