CFP: ACRL e-Learning Proposal Submissions

CFP: ACRL e-Learning Proposal Submissions

ACRL welcomes proposal submissions for ACRL e-learning events. Submit a proposal for live webcasts or asynchronous online seminars. We encourage you to share your cutting-edge practices and innovative developments with your colleagues. The proposal submission deadline is December 17, 2010.
e-Learning Formats

Webcasts: ACRL webcasts usually run 90 minutes in length, including time for audience Q&A. Webcasts are offered live on the Elluminate online meeting platform. Presenters can use PowerPoint, online polls, white board, and other interactive tools during the webcast. We recommend having a few interactive elements incorporated throughout the session to keep the online audience engaged. Participants can send questions (either via chat or audio) that the presenters can respond to. ACRL offers e-Learning webcast presenters a 10% royalty of webcast fees, less the Elluminate vendor fees, split between the presenters.

Online Courses: ACRL online courses are primarily asynchronous events offered over the course of three or four weeks. Online courses are offered on the Moodle platform. Courses should include weekly readings, discussion questions, assignments, and/or chat sessions. ACRL provides $1,000 for content development for new multi-week courses, as well as a royalty of 10% of the course registration fees, split between the presenters, each time the course is offered.
