Call for proposals: SCIL Works

Southern California Instruction Librarians (SCIL) will host SCIL Works on 28 January 2022 as a virtual half-day conference.

Adapting in-person activities for masks and social distancing; Shifting virtual activities (back) to a face-to-face environment or new situations; Ensuring accessibility to a diverse population; Asynchronous vs synchronous instruction; Student engagement; Managing behind-the-scenes work Proposals can be for a presentation (20-minute presentation where the presenter shares his/her research or an effective program or practice with participants, with an additional 5 minutes for Q&A.) or Lightning Round (live, 5-minute poster session or slide deck.
