ALPS December Meeting: December 6, 2013, Vancouver BC

The theme for this year’s ALPS December Meeting is:

Technology and the academic librarian: emerging, merging, and changing the game

Flexible learning; virtual campus infrastructure, open access, open learning, open data, open textbooks, (open everything!)’ MOOCs, LOOCS! What does it all mean for academic librarians? Do place and physical presence matter or is good technology enough?

This December come share your strategies, questions, and innovations related to these new models for higher education. We are looking for speakers who have something to say about our shifting landscape and how we are adapting to it. Is your institution embracing a new model for instruction? How has your library been involved in developing or supporting new ways of delivering services and information to our students, staff and faculty? Are we doing a good job of adapting?

Format: 15-minute lightning talks (with lots of time for questions and discussion)

Submit a proposal for your lightning talk to by 4 pm on November 4th, 2013

Please include your name, your topic, and why it’s relevant or interesting or current. No pressure – if you can do all of that in 20 words that’s enough. Or write a page. Whatever works for you!

Also, tell us if you’ll require technology beyond laptop, projector and wifi.

Thank you!
