ACRL 2011 Virtual Conference Proposals

July 26th, 2010 by David Free in ACRL 2011 2 Comments

Proposals are now being accepted for interactive, online sessions for the ACRL 2011 Virtual Conference. Held in conjunction with ACRL 2011 in Philadelphia, and featuring live, on-the-fly polling, white boards, co-browsing and desktop sharing,  virtual presenting is a unique and affordable opportunity for both experienced and new presenters. We are seeking a broad range of submissions that highlight current, evolving and future issues in academic libraries. Sessions will be selected based on relevance, timeliness of topic and clear, intriguing proposals.

Webcasts are 60 minutes (including Q&A) and should be specifically designed for virtual presentation.  Presenters should explain how they will use the Webcast environment to create interactivity among the attendees. Links to the recorded sessions will be posted on the Virtual Conference Website, which all attendees (virtual or onsite) can access for up to a year following the conference! For examples of Webcasts and other virtual content from ACRL’s 2009 Virtual Conference, visit www.learningtimes.net/acrlconference/.

In addition to these exclusive online-only sessions, the ACRL 2011 Virtual Conference will feature onsite conference session recordings, speaker handouts, blogs, discussion forums, chats and more. Registration will open in 2011, with virtual presenter registration fees waived. If accepted, virtual presenters will also gain access to all of the content on the conference Website for up to a year.

Submit proposals by November 1, 2010 through the ACRL 2011 Website. Presenters will be notified by January 1, 2011 if their proposal has been accepted.

PRESENTERS ARE EXPECTED TO:
* Attend an online 30-60 minute training on Adobe Connect prior to the conference
* Conduct an online session using Adobe Connect
* Provide a photo, bio and program description for the conference website by February 1, 2010
* Respond to questions from an interact with virtual attendees
