Proposal and presentation considerations
LILi (Lifelong Information Literacy) is accepting proposals for lightning talks, presentations, and poster sessions relating to this year’s virtual conference theme, Small Victories in Information Literacy! We are celebrating small victories in information literacy that others can adapt or model. We recognize that not all wins are on a grand scale and not everyone is in a position to change a program completely or start something big. Small scale victories (and even failures!) can offer clues and data to support new or even updated initiatives. And, upon reflection some of our greatest successes arise from a series of small experiments and victories!

Possible presentation topics may include, but are not limited to:  

  • Making an impact with minimal resources
  • Adapting the old to meet new needs
  • Different modes of instruction
  • Growing from failure
  • Promoting different types of information literacy and lifelong learning
  • Teaching to diverse audiences
  • Active learning instruction techniques
  • Assessment
  • Information literacy in non-academic environments
  • Artificial Intelligence and Information Literacy
  • Games and Information Literacy
  • Critical thinking

Proposal submission:
To be considered, complete proposals must include a title, abstract of up to 300 words, and 1-3 main learning objectives/takeaways for the audience. Presenters must also agree that sessions will be recorded and publicly posted online following the conference. Please visit our FAQ for presenter information, including session formats and important dates. We invite proposals from diverse voices, giving priority to people from marginalized communities during the submission process.
