The Library Instruction Round Table’s Conference Program Committee and Teaching Learning and Technology Committee are currently accepting electronic poster (e-poster) proposals for the ALA annual conference to be held in New Orleans June 22-28, 2006.
The theme for the 2006 LIRT conference program is Instructional Design for Teaching and Learning in Libraries. E-poster content should focus on this topic. Electronic poster submissions can either be web-based (Internet connectivity will not be available, any Web pages displayed should be saved locally and in their entirety on the laptop being used) or in PowerPoint format. Presenters will need to bring their own laptops. Direct all submissions to Eileen Stec ([email protected]), Co-chair, TLT Committee or Julie Elliott ([email protected]), Co-chair, Conference Program Committee.
The e-poster format has been chosen (rather than more traditional formats) because part of the LIRT conference presentation will be a teaching and technology fair; during this fair librarians will partner with selected software vendors to demonstrate low and high threshold applications; these applications, when used with familiar programs (like Webct) or placed singly on the web, enhance teaching and learning. The e-poster format will compliment this fair and show conference attendees that LIRT is an innovative and creative forum for the expression of new ideas.
Deadline for submissions is January 13th, 2006.
We are hoping those of you who have experience with the different applications will consider submitting an e-poster.
