The second of three Library 2.016 online mini-conferences is coming up on Wednesday, June 15, 2016. The conference discussion will center on the theme of the Library as Classroom, with both keynote sessions andcrowd-sourced presentations. There’s still time to submit a presentation proposal and share your experiences with your peers from around the world.

For example, Tasha Squires, a learning resource center teacher at a middle school library near Chicago, Illinois, will be talking about an award-winning gamification program she designed and implemented to increase student interaction beyond the classroom. The competitive library game resulted in no summer slide.

How are you using the library as a creative classroom full of discovery and exploration? Lorette McWilliams and M. Elena Lopez of the Harvard Family Research Project will highlight creative ways to use library assets for family educational engagement based on the results of a 2016 national survey of nearly 500 urban, suburban, and rural libraries. You can read their proposal and other accepted proposals on the conference website.

Please consider joining the conversation by submitting your presentation proposal. Presentations should be at least 15 minutes in length and must be completed (including Q&A) within 25 minutes. Presentations will be held online via Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing, and training is provided for all presenters. The deadline to submit proposals is May 31, 2016. Please read the Call for Proposals for full instructions.
