LSAC 2015 National Conference

Second and Final Call for Proposals

The Learning Specialist Association of Canada (LSAC) invites proposals for sessions at our 2015 national conference, May 11-13, at the University of Guelph in Ontario.  While proposals on any topic relevant to our practice are welcome, we are particularly interested in sessions which reflect the conference theme of Transitions: People, Practice, Profession.

To help participants choose the sessions most relevant to their needs, please consider in which of the following streams your session would best fit:

  • Assessment
  • Learning Centre Coordination/Management
  • Learning Strategies
  • Peer-to-Peer Assistance
  • Student Populations
  • Student Resources
  • Students with Disabilities
  • Writing
  • Other - please specify on the proposal form

The conference will feature four session formats:

1. Workshop - 60 minutes
Inspire your participants to roll up their sleeves and immerse themselves in the luxury of an hour of focused quality time developing ideas, strategies, or tools they can use in their practice. A high level of interactivity is anticipated.

2.  Panel - 60 minutes
What better way to come to grips with a topic, issue or interesting problem than assembling a group of keen, passionate colleagues with something to contribute?  A panel is an ideal way to elucidate the complexities of a timely issue. Please allow ample opportunity for the audience to ask questions of the panel.

3.  Practice Exchange Discussion - 60 minutes
Have you got lots of questions but not many answers?  Engage the savvy minds of your colleagues and facilitate a give-and-take group discussion on a hot topic of your choice.

4.  Information Session - 25 minutes
Are you longing to share a recent programming innovation, technological wizardry, or fascinating research project? Here's your chance to showcase your latest and greatest project, inspiring insight, or trendy tech tool.

The final deadline for submitting proposals is Monday, January 26, 2015 by midnight.  Each proposal will be blind-reviewed by an independent committee.  Results will be communicated in early February.
