Call for papers WILU: Visions of the Possible #WILU2020

There is a call for proposals for the Canadian Information Literacy conference due to take place 27-29 May 2020 in Halifax, Canada.
WILU 2020. Deadline for proposals is  November 15, 2019. The conference theme is Visions of the Possible and the conference is hosted by Dalhousie, Mount Saint Vincent, and Saint Mary’s Universities. They say about the theme: "Teaching is, in part, about asking questions. Thoughtful teaching considers questions like “what is happening in this classroom?” and “what works in helping students learn?” Visions of the possible, a phrase borrowed from the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), goes further and asks us to ponder “what if?” and avoid making assumptions. Visions of the possible anticipate surprise and embrace the unexpected nature of some of teaching’s most important outcomes."

You can put in proposals for: Presentation (45-minute session); Panel discussion (45-minute session); Lightning talk (5-minute session). Conference info is at https://wilu-conference.github.io Links to previous WILU conference websites are here: https://wilu-conference.github.io/about/
