Call for MLA 2011 CE Course and Symposia Ideas
MLA is now accepting ideas for exciting and innovative courses and symposia to offer at MLA '11 in Minneapolis, MN. Courses and symposia will be held on May 13, May 14, and May 18, 2011. Suggestions must be submitted by Tuesday, December 15, 2009, for consideration by the MLA Continuing Education Committee (CEC) at its midwinter meeting in January 2010.
What new topics or courses have caught your eye? Who is teaching a class or has expertise you would like to tap into? What classes from past meetings would you like to see offered again? The MLA CEC wants to hear from you! Are you currently a course instructor or would you like to create a new course? You may nominate yourself.
MLA defines a symposium as a "learning opportunity organized for the purpose of providing a forum for discussion of a well-defined topic." Typically, it consists of a series of presentations by experts, followed by an exchange of opinions among participants. Active involvement of the attendees must be built into the symposium schedule to qualify as an educational opportunity.
If your idea is chosen by the CEC, you will be asked to submit a proposal, using the official MLA Symposium Guidelines for final consideration at its May 2009 meeting.
Send your submission form to: Kelly Near, CEC Liaison, 2011 National Program Committee, Claude Moore Health Sciences Library, 1350 Jefferson Park Avenue, Charlottesville, VA 22908; 434-924-1607; fax 434-982-4238; email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
