CHICAGO – The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) invites subject matter experts and school librarians looking to share best practices with their peers to submit proposals for AASL eCOLLAB webinars. AASL seeks webinars 45-60 minutes in length to be presented between February and June 2015. Proposals may be submitted using the AASL Get Involved form.

Proposals should include up to three learning objectives and should address how the webinar subject matter supports AASL’s mission of empowering leaders to transform teaching and learning. Consideration will be given to submissions that demonstrate innovative thinking and/or new perspectives or present strategies for effectively implementing new ideas and technology. All webinar topics will be considered. Recommended topics include collaboration, technology implementation and programming best practices.

The AASL professional development advisory group will evaluate proposals for clarity, originality and timeliness. Questions about AASL eCOLLAB webinars can be sent to Jennifer Habley, AASL manager of web communications at jhabley@ala.org.

The American Association of School Librarians, www.aasl.org, a division of the American Library Association (ALA), empowers leaders to transform teaching and learning.
