Call for Proposals – 5th ALA Forum on Education
5th ALA Forum on Education: Service Learning and Citizen Engagement
We are pleased to announce a call for participation for the 5th ALA Forum on Education to be held on Friday, June 27, 2008 from 1:30 to 3:30 pm during the upcoming ALA Annual Meeting in Anaheim, California. Masters Level students who have participated in a service learning project or who have designed a yet to be completed service learning project are encouraged to submit a proposal.

The 5th ALA Forum on Education will feature a researchpalooza format followed by a traditional poster session. During the researchpalooza you will address the audience from a podium and present your service learning project in 90 seconds or less with the aid of one PowerPoint slide to an audience of 150 ALA members. Following the researchpalooza presenters will be asked to participate in a poster session where attendees will be able to ask questions and further discuss service learning projects. The researchpalooza format was a great success at MidWinter 2008 and we excited to offer an opportunity to participate in this innovative program.
