Bridging the Gap: Knowledge Creation, Information Literacy, and the Role of Technology in Education
Call for Proposals
We are seeking presenters to lead interesting and interactive discussions about information literacy and library instruction. We are especially interested in breakout sessions and panels related to this year's theme, Bridging the Gap: Knowledge Creation, Information Literacy, and the Role of Technology in Education. To offer multiple perspectives, we encourage all types of libraries, schools and other organizations to submit proposals.
In keeping with the Summit theme, we'd like to make explicit the connection between teaching and learning digital literacies and the use of technology to teach and learn. We are extending our call for proposals outside of the library community to educational technologists, instructional designers, and instructional technologists.
The Summit is a regional conference which will be held at three locations across Illinois. When submitting your proposal, please indicate the location(s) at which you'd like to present. If you wish to propose more than one breakout session, please fill out a form for each topic. Breakout sessions and panels will be 50 minutes long and should include audience interaction or discussion. Hands-on lessons and demonstrations (and/or practical takeaways) are encouraged. Sessions typically have 20-40 participants.
