What to expect:
A Lightning Talk is an informal, fast-paced presentation that gives you the opportunity to share your work, make connections, and build new skills and presentation techniques – all in five short minutes! We want to know about the success you've had developing or adapting a particular lesson, teaching technique, or instructional tool in a public, school, academic or special library setting. Show us your favorite RI Information Literacy tutorials or Libguides! Following both Lightning Talk rounds, presenters will be asked to join a brief Q & A panel.
Proposal Guidelines Format:
Lightning Talk presentations must be kept to a maximum of 5 minutes. In 150 words or less, please provide a brief description of your proposed lightning talk, including a link to your tutorial, Libguide, or other online IL resource, and give a short explanation of how your presentation will relate to the event theme.
