Education Institute Session Proposal
Do you have an interesting topic that you’d like to share with library & information professionals across Canada? We want to hear from you!
The Education Institute is always looking for presenters to share best practices, expert knowledge, tips & tricks and stories across many topics, such as:
Innovative approaches to reference or collection practices
Successful library programming and services
Management & Leadership
Teaching & Learning
Digital Literacy, Privacy & Security
Marketing & Community Outreach
Project Management & Productivity
Diversity, Inclusion & Accessibility
Dates & Times:
Webinars are scheduled on Tuesdays, and Thursdays between 12-3 pm EST. The Winter Semester runs from February - April, Summer Semester runs from May - August, and Fall Semester runs from September - December.
Webinars are typically 1 hour in length, including Q&A. If preferred, presenters can instead lead a 30 minute “Lunch & Learn” webinar, which will give presenters the opportunity to share pro tips, success stories, or expand on a lightning talk.
Presenters will receive an honourarium for their session.
Bright Young Minds:
Are you a student or a new grad? Let’s work together!
We value student research and want your voice to be heard & showcased. As the next generation of library professionals, this is a wonderful opportunity to share your research and experience with people in the field and foster connections between academic schools and professionals.
Student speakers will be a part of our “Bright Young Minds” webinar series, and will receive an honourarium.
You will be contacted if your session is selected.
Please keep it short and related to the topic. You want participants to know what they're signing up for at a glance.
