Call for Proposals  

We are seeking presenters to lead engaging and interactive discussions about information literacy and library instruction. We are especially interested in breakout sessions and panels which explore the contexts of teaching and learning and the ways in which we collaborate with students, faculty, and our librarian colleagues. We hope to foster conversations across all types of libraries, schools and other organizations and encourage a diversity of perspectives in this proposal call.

The Summit is a regional conference which will be held at the Moraine Valley Community College campus. If you wish to propose more than one breakout session, please fill out a form for each topic. Breakout sessions and panels will be 50 minutes long and should include audience interaction or discussion. Panel discussions should have a three person maximum. Hands-on lessons and demonstrations (and/or practical takeaways) are encouraged. Sessions typically have 20-40 participants.

The submission should include a 200-300 word description of your session. Please include learning outcomes and a brief explanation of why people should attend your session and what they will take away. A shorter abstract (around 100 words) for publication in the Summit programming will be required as well.
