LITA Education Call for Proposals, Special Webinar Series, 2020

lita: empowering libraries through technology

Veteran presenters and publication gurus, we are looking for you! LITA is putting together a special webinar series to disseminate expertise on turning ideas and projects into conference presentations, workshops, publications, and best practices for social media.

We are seeking webinars on topics such as where to publish, assessing metrics for potential publication outlets, how to make a strong submission, and creating social media buzz. If you have a formula for achieving these goals, or techniques, tricks, or best practices that have served you well, we’d love to work with you to help you share your expertise with a national audience.

We deliberately seek and strongly encourage submissions from underrepresented groups, such as women, people of color, the LGBTQA+ community, and people with disabilities.

Submit a proposal by September 1 to teach one of these special webinars in 2020.

All topics related to presenting your work to your colleagues are welcome, including:

  • How to turn your tech idea into a workshop, social media, etc.
  • Presenting at a conference, delivering a keynote, or putting on a workshop
  • Writing skills and starters
  • Where to publish
  • Submitting a strong article or book proposal
  • Editing skills
  • Evaluating the impact of publishing in different channels

Instructors receive a $500 honorarium for an online course or $150 for a webinar, split among instructors. Check out our list of current and past course offerings to see what topics have been covered recently.
