NAHSL CONFERENCE 2013, OCTOBER 27TH - OCTOBER 29TH, 2013: Lightning Presentations

Sea Crest Beach Hotel, Falmouth, Massachusetts

CALL FOR LIGHTNING PRESENTATIONS!

The Lightning Presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, October 29 from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Each presenter will have 5 minutes to present. The session will be divided into two rounds:

Round 1 (9:30 – 10:00 a.m.) will showcase the “Ignite” format. The Ignite format allows the presenter exactly 5 minutes, accompanied by 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds.

Round 2 (10:00 – 10:30 a.m.) will be “freeform”: any format, any number of slides (or none!). Use PowerPoint, YouTube, or other media (or none) - whatever you want. Freeform sessions will also be limited (strictly!) to 5 minutes.

The Object of the lightning round is to present an idea, a project, a plan, a philosophy or whatever is on your mind. Topics may include health, librarianship, technology, some special project, or any subject related to the conference or the profession. Creativity is welcome!  The abstract must include the title of the presentation, the chosen format, and a brief summary.  

How to do it: First, view the video and slides by Jeannine Gluck and Kate Cheromka: How To Light A Sparkler.  This presentation is both a how-to and a perfect demonstration of the Ignite format. Enjoy. 

Abstracts will be due September 6th. Use the Abstract Submission form on the right.

 If you have questions, please contact Margo Coletti (mcoletti@bidmc.harvard.edu).
