RUSA call for webinar and online course proposals: Fall 2013
Dear RUSA Professional Development Committee:
A call for proposals has been issued for webinars and online courses.
We have also posted information on the RUSA Twitter feed (@ala_rusa) and RUSA Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ala.rusa).
Also, below I've pasted the text I sent out to the RUSA listservs.
Please help spread the word by sharing this information on the various social media channels, listservs and member groups you are connected to. If you know of someone specific who would do a good job presenting a webinar or course on one of the topics listed in the blog post, please contact them directly and encourage them to submit a proposal.
The proposal period will end Sept. 1. RUSA Web Manager Andrea Hill will share submitted proposals with you at that time. We look forward to receiving your recommendations for all proposals by Sept. 15.
Questions? Please contact Andrea at email@example.com.
