CFP: Midwinter discussion forum on strategies for using learning management systems in libraries

By sgodbey on September 25, 2015 3:04 PM | Permalink

Do you work in an academic, public, or school library where you are using
learning management systems (Blackboard, brightspace/Desire2Learn, Canvas,
Moodle, etc.) in new or unusual ways?  For example do you use an LMS for
training library personnel; for non-traditional, online education
opportunities for public library users; for online delivery of library
information in the K-12 environment; are you an academic librarian who has
developed a unique approach to information literacy using an LMS?  Do you plan
to attend the ALA Midwinter Conference (January 8-12, 2016) in Boston?

If so, the Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) Web Advisory Committee
encourages you to submit a brief proposal for an 8-10 minute lightning talk on
your library’s use of library management systems at the Midwinter LIRT
Discussion Forum which we believe will be scheduled on the morning of Sunday,
January 10.  The format of the discussion forum will be 3-4 lightning talks,
followed by a brief question and answer session.  Then the audience will
participate in guided small group discussions, ultimately reporting back to
the larger group on interesting ideas or challenges that emerged from those

Please provide information about your proposal here:, no later than Friday, October 2, 2015.  The
Committee will finalize decisions for the lightning talks by Friday, October
