Call for proposals: Distance and Online Library Instruction Virtual Poster Session

The ACRL Distance and Online Learning Section Instruction Committee (DOLS-IC) invites proposal to the fifth annual Distance and Online Library Instruction Virtual Poster Session, taking place free online 24-28 April 2023. Proposals are due 31 January 2023. "The term "poster" is used very loosely. The intent is to keep the spirit of the traditional poster session while allowing for creativity in the format used. As in traditional poster sessions, virtual presenters will create short, asynchronous presentations of their work and be available to answer questions during the week of the poster session. While an image or PDF that matches the traditional poster format is welcome, the sky's the limit! Interactive and multimedia formats that are accessible are especially encouraged.... During the poster session week, presenters will asynchronously engage with attendees throughout the week. Viewers can ask questions about your work through commenting functionality and engage in conversation with you about your topic. After the poster session week has concluded, the posters will be archived on the DOLS website so that they can continue to be viewed indefinitely."
Themes are:
- Accessibility and Inclusivity: How do you ensure that your online courses and learning objects are accessible for all? How do you intentionally create inclusive online spaces and content for diverse audiences?
- Assessment: How do you assess your online instruction (including qualitative and affective assessment)? - Creative Approaches: How have you used creativity in your design, collaboration, or engagement strategies within online library instruction?
- Instructional Collaborations: How do you effectively build relationships and collaborate with faculty, instructional designers, and others to instruct distance and online students?
- Project Planning & Management: How do you efficiently manage the "behind the scenes" work of planning, developing, reviewing, and updating online courses and learning objects?
Full details are here. Poster guidelines are here and the submission form is here
