To increase ALSC’s continuing education opportunities, the Education Committee is pleased to announce its new Research-to-Practice webinar series. The purpose of the series is to disseminate current research related to youth services and address how it can be applied in public and school libraries.
The Education Committee invites proposals for webinars to be presented in this series. Proposals may be on a wide array of research topics, but they should have a strong emphasis on how the research findings inform the practices of librarians and others working with children. While proposals from established researchers are welcome, students graduating from master’s and doctoral programs are especially encouraged to apply. The webinar series is an opportunity for new graduates to gain experience presenting and for established researchers to showcase their work within the ALSC community.
ALSC webinar presenters are compensated $100 for developing the webinar.
Proposals may be submitted to http://www.ala.org/alsc/online-education-proposal. They are reviewed by the ALSC Education Committee on a rolling basis and may be submitted at any time.
For tips on writing a successful webinar proposal, please view "How to Write Successful ALSC Webinar and Course Proposals," a presentation developed by the committee for prospective ALSC instructors and presenters, available at http://www.ala.org/alsc/how-write-successful-alsc-webinar-and-course-proposals.
