Have you heard? ARLIS/NA is instituting an unconference at Pasadena.
We invite you to attend the Bring Your Own Conference (BYOC) session on Sunday April 28, 2013 from 2:30pm – 4:00pm.
Join organizers and colleagues to determine the program topics and break into small groups for discussion and presentations. This is an opportunity to extend conversations with your colleagues, hash out problems that have been on our mind, and propose solutions. If you’ve attended an inspiring panel or SIG, then bring your ideas to the unconference to continue the discussion. This is also a great place to talk about any projects your are currently working on in your graduate program.
Never attended an unconference before? No problem! In a nutshell, unconferences are flexibly designed to allow all participants to contribute their expertise. The topics won’t be selected ahead of time (although we are gathering ideas on a collaborative Google Doc), and discussion rather than traditional lecture will be the order of the day. Ideas proposed thus far are “Marketing Show and Tell,” “Apps Discussion,” “Wikipedia Takeover by Art Librarians,” and ” Interactive Tools in the Classroom.”
Please review information at the session wiki and add the session to your Sched. If you aren’t attending in person, follow along virtually with the Twitter hashtag #arlisbyoc13.
