CLENE has a lot of wonderful stuff going on at ALA: Programs, Preconferences, a Discussion Group, and more! We hope to see you at one of our programs and, as always, you’re invited to join us at our Board meetings; to participate, observe or just drop in to say hello.

PRECONFERENCES on Friday July 10

  • AM Preconference: Making it Stick: Designing, Delivering, and Surviving Presentations: A polished and memorable presentation requires skills that depend on your ability to work with, influence, and persuade your audience. This interactive hands-on workshop will help you understand and develop rapport with your audience; develop active content in your presentation; help you learn to be comfortable in front of your audience; and understand when and how to use support materials.
    Speakers: Lori Reed, Employee Learning Coordinator for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library; Paul Signorelli, writer/trainer/consultant for libraries and nonprofit organizations (Paul Signorelli & Associates).
  •  

  • PM Preconference: Punch it up with Pictures: Presentations with visual power: Are your presentations riddled with bullet points? Visual images often speak louder and more succinctly than words. In the tight format of a PowerPoint presentation, strategic use of images can convey more meaning than bullet points and text. The presenter skills you learn in the morning workshop on delivering an unforgettable presentation will shine brighter when your support materials complement rather than compete with you. This workshop will help you to understand how visuals communicate, show you where to find free-use images, and share some best practices for editing and adding images to your presentations.
    Speakers: Tony Tallent, Director of Libraries & Arts for the City of Boulder, Colorado; Michael Porter, Interactive Strategy Manager for WebJunction; Betha Gutsche, Learning Initiatives Developer for WebJunction.

Discussion Social Software Experiments

by Mary Ghikas on Wed, Sep 9, 2009 at 01:34 pm

The TechPresident blog has an interesting post about social software experiments -- and how to make them work.  They are quoting Clay Shirky -- and a search on Clay Shirky in YouTube will bring up a number of presentations and interviews, including a couple that are specifically focused on associations.

ALA 2009 Annual Conference Scholarship for a Day

Discussion No, thank you!

by E. Chisato Uyeki on Tue, Jul 14, 2009 at 12:47 pm

I just wanted to say I so appreciated having the opportunity to meet and interact with so many of the students and scholars who were part of the Conference for a day. As a guide was hoping to be helpful in orienting others to conference, but as I should always expect, I learned a lot, had fun, and was inspired and re-invigorated through my interactions with all of you new-to or thinking about librarianship and by learning along side you all. I spoke briefly to a few folks who wanted to talk more- but we didn't reconnect- please do feel free to be in touch with me directly. Best, Chisa

Discussion questions for associations

by Mary Ghikas on Tue, Sep 8, 2009 at 01:44 pm

A number of interesting posts were triggered by this year's ASAE annual conference.  Jeff DeCagna posted these questions to Facebook:

What does it mean to be a 21st century association?

How do we design next practices?  -- Jeff's focus is very much on the innovation required by the "reset economy."

How do we solve wicked problems? -- In particular, how might we, as an association, use our "convening" ability to help members/society address "complicated and intractable problems that defy easy solutions"?

Discussion Cyberlearning

by Mary Ghikas on Tue, Sep 8, 2009 at 01:12 pm

Here's another report related to this topic that may be of interest to some:  

 

Fostering Learning in the Networked World: A 21st Century Agenda for the National Science Foundation.  Report of the NSF Task Force on Cyberlearning. 

A pdf is on the web.

Fostering Learning in the Networked World: A 21st Century Agenda for the National Science Foundation.  Report of the NSF Task Force on Cyberlearning. 

A pdf is on the web.

 

Here's how the executive summary opens: "Imagine a high school student in the year 2015. She has grown up in a world where learning is as accessible through technologies at home as it is in the classroom, and digital content is as real to her as paper, lab equipment, or textbooks...."  Among the top-level recommendations are these:

- "Help build a vibrant cyberlearning field by promoting cross-disciplinary communities of cyberlearning researchers and practitioners...."

- "Emphasize the transformative power of information and communications technology for learning, from K to grey."( I like "K to grey" -- "lifelong learning" was getting tired -- but I think the ALSC folks would say pre-K to grey.

- "Adopt programs and policies to promote open educational resources."
