Keynote Speaker: David Carr: What is reflective teaching, and how does it affect me?
For more than 30 years, David Carr taught librarianship at Rutgers–the State University of New Jersey, and UNC-Chapel Hill, specializing in collections, reading, and reference services in humanities and social sciences. He assists cultural institutions, educators, and leaders in their interpretations of what their institutions mean to users; helps them to invent and construct new possibilities, often collaborative; and advocates the value of a nourished public imagination in a democracy. He writes extensively about adult learning outside schools, especially in public cultural institutions such as libraries and museums. In recent years, he has lectured and written on the passion for reading in adult life and has assisted public libraries carry out community reading projects. Carr was recognized as a master teacher by the Association for Library and Information Science Education in 1994. He has published more than fifty articles, addresses, chapters and book reviews, and two collections of essays: The Promise of Cultural Institutions in 2003, and A Place Not a Place: Reflection and Possibility in Museums and Libraries in 2006. In 2011 he published Open Conversations: Public Learning in Libraries and Museums. He is now writing and thinking about the value of public cultural institutions as essential instruments in democratic societies. Carr holds a Bachelor’s degree from Drew University, Master’s degrees from Columbia and Rutgers Universities, and the Ph.D. from Rutgers University. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
