Proposals due: Friday, November 22, 2013
We invite you to submit breakout session proposals to be considered for presentation at the LOEX 2014 Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Proposals should showcase effective and innovative library instruction & information literacy practices, provide useful information that participants can utilize at their libraries, support collaboration, and be as applicable as possible to a wide range of academic institution types.
Successful proposals should reflect elements of one of seven tracks:

* Impressions/Expressions -- Evaluation and Assessment
* Brushes, Paints & Palettes -- Technologies and Innovation
* Inside the Frame -- Visual Literacy
* Mixed Media Magic -- Collaborative Relationships
* Theory & Technique -- Instructional Design and Performance
Breakout Session Formats
Two types of proposals will be accepted:
* Presentation: A 50-minute session that includes time for a 40-45 minute presentation and 5-10 minutes of question and answer. Most feature a successful program, practice or key issue related to instruction or information literacy. Presentations are intended for an audience typically of 30-70 people. Presenters should include in the proposal description the topic and an outline of the presentation.
* Interactive Workshop: A 50-minute session where the presenter facilitates a learning experience in which attendees develop or explore teaching and/or research techniques. Presenters are expected to facilitate a well-planned and interactive session. Workshops are intended for an audience typically of 30-50 people. Proposals should include a description of the topic and details on how the presenter will make this session a "hands-on" experience for attendees.
In addition to breakout sessions:
1. Students currently enrolled in a Master's program in library and information sciences, along with librarians in resident or intern programs, will be invited to propose poster sessions. Details about poster sessions will be issued in a separate call for proposals.
2. Lightning Talks--short (seven minutes or less) presentations given during a single Saturday session by different presenters. There will only be a handful (~ five) lightning talk presentations, as they are intended to be an energizing, but small, part of the conference. Proposals will be due in late January. More details about Lightning Talks will be issued in a November call for proposals.
Proposals can be submitted only through the online submission form and must be received by Friday, November 22, 2013. The primary contact for the proposal will receive a message indicating receipt of the proposal when it is submitted and will be notified if the proposal has been accepted for presentation by Friday, January 10, 2014.
If your proposal is accepted, then up to three presenters will be automatically registered for the conference and required to pay registration in full by Monday, March 31, 2014.

A book edited by Abigail G. Scheg
(Elizabeth City State University, USA)
To be published by IGI Global: http://bit.ly/1hzJKyv
The Advances in Educational Technologies & Instructional Design (AETID) Book Series is a resource where researchers, students, administrators, and educators alike can find the most updated research and theories regarding technology's integration within education and its effect on teaching as a practice.
The flipped classroom is a pedagogical practice that has garnered a significant following in recent years. The premise of a flipped classroom is that lecture and traditional content preparation is done at home (such as via videos on an LMS) and the classroom time is used for students to engage with the content and complete activities. Therefore, the traditional concept of the classroom is "flipped," meaning lectures are listened to or watched at home and "homework" is done in the classroom. The flipped classroom has demonstrated positive increases in student engagement and interaction, as well as positive outcomes in subject matter expertise.
Objective of the Book
The mission of this text is to provide a necessary resource in the flipped classroom for individuals who are interested in pursuing this pedagogical endeavor but have not participated in a flipped classroom themselves. Therefore, this text will provide foundational materials as well as narrative explanations of successful aspects of a flipped classroom from experienced instructors.
The target audience for this text will be educators across disciplines and levels, as well as educational administrators.
Recommended topics are any in-depth analysis or assessment of the flipped classroom experience, regardless of level or discipline. This text is not looking for chapters introducing the concept of a flipped classroom. Topic ideas:
· Successful assignments used with the flipped classroom
· Successful teaching methodologies with the flipped classroom
· Assessing students' expectations and experiences with the flipped classroom
· Challenges of implementation
· Challenges of maintaining or articulating positive results to those outside of the classroom
This section is not comprehensive. Please feel free to contact the editor with an idea or chapter proposal.
Interested participants are invited to submit a 300 word abstract on or before December 15, 2013 clearly explaining the field of study and specific developments to be addressed within the chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by December 30, 2013 about the status of their proposals and given specific chapter guidelines. Full chapters, if accepted, are expected to be submitted by April 30, 2014. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.
This book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.), publisher of the Information Science Reference (formerly Idea Group Reference), Medical Information Science Reference, Business Science Reference, and Engineering Science Reference imprints.
