LIRT Conference Program -- 1999

Contains information about the LIRT 1999 Conference Program

Technology in Action: Getting the Most From Your Electronic Classroom -- Sunday, June 27, 1999 -- 9:30 am - 12:30 am

The physical arrangement of the computer teaching lab has recently been under some scrutiny. Is there a "best" way to create or update lab space to maximize student learning? Does the librarian need to change or alter the teaching process in response to the physical environment?

This program will offer practical insights to teaching librarians using computer labs as part of the instructional process. A poster session "Teaching with Technology" will cap the morning's activities.

The featured speakers are:

Michael Miller

Director of Information Services

Media Union

University of Michigan Ann Arbor, MI
Design Considerations for Computer Classrooms
Gale Burrow

Coordinator of Library Services

Honnold/Mudd Library

The Libraries of the Claremont Colleges

Claremont, CA

The program will be held at the Marriot New Orleans in the Acadia Room.
