In this interactive session, participants can expect to learn how to increase student engagement through several community responsive initiatives, including: zine collection development and programming, launch of "Critical Connections" communications, development of an Open Education Resource textbook, and contemplative pedagogy in the information literacy classroom. Brief overviews will be provided, and participants will learn strategies to create inclusive content, facilitate difficult conversations, and promote an atmosphere of belonging. Audience members will be invited to discuss and share examples from their libraries.
