SEAALL will continue to offer programs in a variety of formats. We encourage you to submit proposals that emphasize interactivity and innovation. We especially encourage program proposals that reflect our theme, New Frontiers. To that end, we will give special consideration to programs on the topics of succession planning, career transitions among library types, cross training within libraries, and leadership development.
We will begin the meeting with a series of Ignite talks in place of a plenary speaker. Ignite talks may be on any subject but are limited to five minutes accompanied by 20 slides. Each slide is displayed for 15 seconds and slides automatically advance. Ignite talks are a perfect place to share a great idea that may not be conducive to a full program session. You can find numerous examples of Ignite talks on YouTube if you need inspiration.
One program slot will be reserved for 6-8 simultaneous poster sessions. At the poster sessions, each presenter will be provided a table to showcase a science fair type poster board. Presenters will speak for five minutes about a library service or public relations project. A moderator will indicate when five minutes are completed. Attendees will rotate among tables after each five minute presentation.
