Headed to ALA

Several of us from the D4L program are on our way to Orlando, Florida for the annual conference of the American Library Association (ALA). We’ll be presenting about the program at a “Conversation Starter” session on Saturday morning from 10:30-11:15 am, titled “Teaching Online About How to Teach Online: The Design for Learning Program.” You can read our abstract for the talk at http://connect.ala.org/node/252014. If you’re coming to the conference we hope you’ll attend!

Even if you can’t make it to that session, you can also find us presenting a poster at the Diversity and Outreach Fair later in the afternoon, from 3-5pm, in the Special Events area of the Exhibit Hall (http://www.eventscribe.com/2016/ala-annual/fsPopup.asp?Mode=presInfo&PresentationID=143359).

At both events (or if you run into us at other events over the weekend) we’ll have cards to hand out to promote our new domain name:

design4learning.info

where we’ll be developing a self-guided online version of the program,

available to the public in 2017!

Also, if you’re a participant in the program, find Arden Kirkland to get a D4L sticker for your badge!

If you’re not attending ALA, stay tuned – we’ll report back afterwards and share our handouts and slides.
