World of Diversity
CALL FOR PROPOSALS – Online form
available from http://bit.ly/1dAg6IE
The Colorado Academic Library Association (CoALA) invites you
to submit your proposal to present at the 2014 CoALA Summit: Educating in a
World of Diversity.
The CoALA Summit will be held in an online format over two days
– Wednesday, June 18 & Thursday, June 19, 2014.
JUNE 18 SCHEDULE:
* Dr. Camila Alire, Opening Keynote,
* First Session from 2:00-3:15
* Second Session from 3:30-4:45pm
JUNE 19 SCHEDULE:
* First Session from 9:00-10:15 -- "Pecha Kucha/Lightning Rounds”; there will
be 4 presentations in total
* Speaker TBD, Closing Keynote, from 10:30-11:45a
Presenters will be required to have access to a computer with a
quality Internet connection and audio/microphone capacity; visual is preferred.
Presenters will be using the Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing platform.
Day one presenter(s) should expect their session to be 45
minutes in length with 15 minutes for discussion. In addition, a new format
will be introduced to the CoALA stage for the second day.
Day two presentations will feature a Pecha Kucha-style format,
similar to "lightning rounds," with presentations that last
approximately 7 minutes followed by 10-15 of discussion. Pecha Kucha is a
presentation style where images and a succinct presentation will enlighten,
inform, and encourage discussion. Think of TED Talks x 100. We encourage those
dynamic presenters to challenge themselves and their audience by creating 20
images X 20 seconds. For more information about Pecha Kucha see http://www.pechakucha.org/
Submission abstract should range between 100-150 words in length.
Programs relevant to the Summit might include: Instructional technologies;
Accessibility initiatives (web design, mobile apps, disability services, RDA,
FRBR); Digital divide; Devices in libraries (e.g. iPads, Kindles, laptops,
etc.); Services/Outreach to diverse populations; Information fluency
instruction/embedded librarianship; Collection content and formats; Special
Collections & Archives; Social Networking for access, teaching, and
learning; Partnerships with community organizations; New academic librarians
(panel presentation of experienced librarians discussing expectations and
duties in academic librarianship).
Proposals will be selected via blind peer review process.
DEADLINE: Proposal submissions are due by March 15 and
notifications will be delivered by April 1.
