Session titles include The Secret Lives of Online Learners, Designing Instruction That's Right for Adults, and TREMENDOUS! 3 Big Ideas for Marketing Library Services to Adults. This preconference will be of interest to librarians from both public and academic libraries (community college and 4+ year institutions), and will include speakers from all types of libraries who will share their perspectives on supporting adult learners. The preconference will employ a variety of presentation formats to engage participants, including panels where librarians will share successful case studies, a break-out instructional design workshop component, and opportunities for discussion. This preconference will be presented by the LIRT Adult Learners Committee.
