NELIG 2019 Annual Conference – Call for Proposals

Annual Conference:
Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences

We are pleased to announce our annual conference will be held Friday, June 21 at New England Institute of Technology in East Greenwich, RI. This year’s program, “Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences,” will explore the use of student-centered teaching in information literacy instruction.

We seek proposals that provide examples of student-centered approaches that may include, but are not limited to, inquiry based learning, critical library pedagogy, exercising empathy and care, collaborative construction of meaning, instruction design, and librarian as facilitator of student success.

Each presenter should plan on speaking for 30-35 minutes with an additional 10-15 minutes for questions and discussion (45 minutes total). We are looking for individual, group, or panel presentations by librarians and/or their collaborative colleagues. Interactive workshops involving computers/devices and hands-on activities are welcome.

NELIG encourages librarians with any amount of experience to submit a proposal, and we are dedicated to providing opportunities for librarians to learn practical ideas from one another. Please feel free to email us if you have any questions about presenting.

Proposals are due by Friday, March 22, 2019 and should be submitted via the link below. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance status by Friday, April 12, 2019 after a blind review by the planning committee.
