Call for proposals:
2014 LIRT Conference Program
Going All In: Library Instruction for Students in Online Education Programs
The 2014 LIRT conference program planning committee is issuing an open call for proposals for presentations that focus on strategies that libraries of all types have used to provide instruction to students in wholly online courses or programs. Presentations should be approximately 20 minutes in length.
An increasing amount of coursework, both at the secondary and postsecondary level, is being conducted online. This shift in the delivery method of education which began at the college level is now occurring throughout the K-16 continuum. Because many of the students in these classes and programs will never set foot into the host institution, this transformation has necessitated a great deal of change in all aspects of library services, including information literacy instruction.
The 2014 LIRT conference program will spotlight innovative ways that libraries are conducting and delivering instruction to this new cohort. Please submit a title and brief description of your proposed presentation to goo.gl/Qv0Cve by December 6th 2013.
