LOEX call for proposals

The USA's major information literacy conference, LOEX, has a call for proposals for the 2012 annual conference, which will be held in Columbus, Ohio, USA, 3-5 May 2012. The theme is: Energize! Accelerate! Transform! Proposals are due on Friday, November 18, 2011. Currently the call is for presentations or workshop sessions (later there will be a call for posters - mostly just open to students or interns - and lightning sessions)
"Successful proposals will model best practices, provide useful information that participants can use at their libraries, showcase effective and innovative practices, support collaboration, and be as applicable as possible to a wide range of academic institution types." There are 7 tracks:
- Cocktails: Engaging students with active learning
- Salads: Reaching diverse populations
- Entrees: Developing your teachers and your programme
- Combo platter: Collaborating.
- To Go: Learning on the go, anytime, anywhere
- Chef’s Surprise: Pursuing cutting-edge trends in teaching and learning
- Dessert: Measuring the effectiveness of programs and learning
