Call for MLA 2012 CE Course and Symposia Ideas
MLA is now accepting ideas for exciting and innovative courses and symposia to offer at MLA '12 in Seattle, WA. Courses and symposia will be held on May 18, May 19, and May 23, 2012. Suggestions must be submitted by Friday, December 17, 2010, for consideration by the MLA Continuing Education Committee (CEC) at its midwinter meeting in January 2011.
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 in January 2011, you will be asked to submit a full proposal, using the official MLA Symposium Guidelines for final consideration. Full proposals are reviewed and selected during the CEC annual meeting in May 2011.
Send your submission form to: Valerie Lynn, CEC Liaison, 2012 National Program Committee, Penn State Hazleton Library, 76 University Dr., Hazleton, PA 18202; 570-450-3172; fax 570-450-3128; email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
