PA Library Association Poster Presentations and Lightning Talks

The Pennsylvania Library Association (PaLA) holds an annual conference each fall to provide the library community with continuing education and networking opportunities. This year’s conference, Shine On! will take place Sunday, October 13 – Wednesday, October 16 at the Bayfront Convention Center located on Lake Erie’s beautiful Presque Isle Bay.

This year, we are offering the option for poster presentations and lightning talks.  Both provide a forum for library professionals to share their successful ideas or innovations with colleagues without doing a formal presentation.  Poster and Lightning Talk FAQs

All proposal submissions must be made via the online submission form, and the deadline to submit is Wednesday, May 15, 2019.
Please note that due to scheduling restraints, their are a limited number of lighting talks that can be accepted.  Many more posters (up to 48) can be scheduled.  So, if you are able to do your presentation as either a lightning talk OR a poster, please indicate “both” when indicating the type of presentation, as this will increase your chances for acceptance.

We look forward to hearing about your latest programs and innovations!

ACRL Distance Learning Instruction Section (DLS-IS) Poster Sessions

Calling all distance learning library workers…

Do you have a tool, project, or great idea about teaching and learning online that you’d like to share with your peers in the ACRL Distance Learning Instruction Section (DLS-IS)? We’re looking for digital poster proposals for our Spring 2019 Digital Poster Session.

Posters can be on any topic related to teaching and learning online.  Some ideas to get you started are:

  • Your own practices and/or challenges with teaching online that are informed by reflection, observation, and/or research

  • Your own experiences as an online learner. What worked, and what was challenging about the experience?

  • Research projects on online teaching & learning

  • Questions about online teaching and learning that are informed by practice or research

  • Tools and strategies that you have used in online instruction. What worked with this tool. Please provide a specific example, when possible

  • How do you approach needs assessments for online students?

We especially invite posters from librarians, staff, and LIS students that highlight voices and experiences that are underrepresented in libraries. Some underrepresented groups may include but are not limited to Black, Indigenous, Latino, people with disabilities, neurodivergent folks, LGBTQIA people, and first generation, undocumented and multilingual experiences.

When?

The poster session will take place April 1-5.

If accepted, you’ll be asked to submit your poster by 3/20 for setup by the DLS-IS committee.

What is a digital poster session?

All posters will be available asynchronously and digitally for one week. We encourage presenters to be creative in how they present their material. Your poster session can contain images, video, include audio clips, or anything else you’d like to share. Please limit embedded media to less than five minutes in length and the media should stand alone with no presenter explanation required.  Through commenting functions, viewers can ask questions about your work, and you can respond regularly. We hope that this format will lead to interesting and vibrant conversations between presenters and viewers across time zones.

What is the time commitment?

Glad you asked! Since we’re holding our poster session in an asynchronous environment, we’d like you to be available to respond to comments and questions for a week.  A member of the DLS-IS committee will be helping to promote interaction, but we ask that you check in on your poster once a day to keep the conversation going.

How will presenters be chosen?

Proposals will be reviewed by members of the DLS Instruction Committee. We will be selecting posters that have clear applicability to online teaching & learning in libraries. The committee will be prioritizing poster proposals that intentionally address critical, feminist, anti-racist and anti-oppressive research and practices.

I’m ready to submit!

The Poster Proposals Submission form is available here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSel4jYto7UlLlbbVrPYDMP7o7ZUP7Bjg5wReKLQx37f7_LvGA/viewform

Important Dates:

Submission deadline: 2/13/19

Presenters notified: 2/27/19

Submit final poster: 3/20/19

Poster Session: 4/1/19 – 4/5/19

brief background information about your project, the research question or problem that drove your project, the methods used, your findings and a brief discussion that includes the impact of your project.

Your proposal should total no more than 250 words. Because this is a blind
review process, be sure to include your name, institution, phone, and email
addresses of all participants (not part of word count) separate from your
abstract (the form has separate fields for these items).

Research Forum Paper Presentations.  Papers are 12 minutes in length and will
be followed by a 5-minute question and answer from the session moderator and
audience members. Proposals should reflect research or initiatives that have
been completed or are currently in progress.

projects that enhance science and technology librarianship.  Proposals should
provide useful and practical findings, and describe opportunities for
discussion with participants.

The Committee adheres to mentoring principles and a “blind” review process to select proposals. We strongly encourage you to remove any identifying information in your proposal prior to submission; otherwise, the STS Research Committee co-chairs will take responsibility for removing identifying information, which may unintentionally alter the text of your submission.

Acceptance of proposals reflects a commitment by the author(s) to present at
the ALA Annual Conference in Washington, DC. Travel support from STS is not
available. Specific logistical details will follow upon acceptance.  Please
submit your proposal via this form: https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgoo.gl%2Fforms%2FtbFrVlUKqzDCn4Lg1&data=02%7C01%7Cdxf19%40psu.edu%7C3425c878dbac45497bd208d67ccd6c78%7C7cf48d453ddb4389a9c1c115526eb52e%7C0%7C0%7C636833619074440700&sdata=NRxOo4GY%2F%2BdbGQm9yLBslwZaAwyNTtrzSFnXoj33Npg%3D&reserved=0

The Innovative Library Classroom

The Innovative Library Classroom (TILC) 2019

Poster Session & Social on Thursday, June 6 and Conference on Friday, June 7, 2019

William & Mary, Williamsburg, VA

“TILC is the best. Small, focused, and always full of great ideas and great librarians.”- past attendee

“This was one of the most useful library conferences I’ve attended; the small size of the conference, and its laser focus on instruction in librarianship, resulted in conversations that were universally useful and relevant to me and my work. Thank you so much!”- another participant’s feedback

We are now accepting proposals for TILC 2019. Inspired by this year’s location, we have chosen the theme Revolutions & Revelations. We hope this phrase will help you brainstorm proposals, but don’t let the theme limit you. Anything about innovative practices related to teaching and learning in libraries is welcome.

Proposals are invited for three different session types:

•       Posters (presented at the Thursday evening social)

•       50-minute presentations

•       7-minute lightning talks

 

Proposals will be peer reviewed.

 

Submission deadline: Thursday, November 15, 2018

Acceptance notification: Friday, January 4, 2019

We expect registration costs to be about $45.

Full details and a link to the proposal form are available at: http://theinnovativelibraryclassroom.weebly.com/

Proposals must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. PT, September 27, 2018.

What makes a good proposal?

We’re looking for presentations that:

  • Take advantage of student-centered pedagogy; show how educators can individualize learning by differentiating instruction and introducing real-world problem-solving; and support your ideas with the latest scientific research on how students learn.
  • Enhance educators’ knowledge. Our goal is to increase both the technical knowledge and the pedagogical content knowledge of educators and teacher candidates.
  • Help develop leadership skills. Explore ways to encourage and empower educators and students to lead.
  • Advance digital age learning. Delve into systems, models, practices and strategies for creating meaningful digital age learning experiences, both virtual and face to face.
  • Address the ISTE Standards. How does your proposal support the ISTE Standards? Provide a model for achieving standards-aligned objectives.
  • Encourage audience participation. Think beyond the lecture and devise new ways to engage your audience. Our session formats include interactive lectures, BYODs, snapshots, roundtables, open-area poster sessions and more. Demonstrate the use of technology to model instructional best practices.
  • Add to the conversation around current relevant challenges, including computer science and integration of computer science into curriculum, higher ed topics and virtual reality.

OK-ACRL

OK-ACRL is now accepting proposals for posters and presentations for this year’s conference.

We have two great keynote speakers:

·       Dr. Lili Luo (San Jose State University) will focus on evidence-based library and information practice.

As our speakers set the scene, we ask you, our fellow librarians, to share your ideas on evidence-based library practice, as well as current research in which your library or librarians are involved.  Presentations should be 45 minutes in length. 15 additional minutes will be allotted for questions after the presentation.  Presenters receive free registration.

Posters (New as well as Recycled):

All new poster ideas are, of course, welcome, but we are also accepting posters that you may have already presented at regional or national conferences in the past year.  We know you put a lot of hard work into your posters, so please share them with the rest of OK-ACRL.  Poster presenters receive a $15 discount on registration.

Posters will be displayed in a come-and-go area for the duration of the conference. Easels for posters will be provided by OK-ACRL.
