Submit a proposal to the 2013 NAMLE Conference

We are currently accepting proposal submissions for the 2013 NAMLE Conference to be held in Torrance, CA on July 12-13. The theme for this conference is Intersections: Teaching and Learning Across Media. Disruption is a watchword for the time we live in: competing social networking platforms, ever-shifting working styles, novel job descriptions displacing the old, manifold curricular and performance demands. With all these possibilities vying for our buy-in, it is vital to seek commonalities. It is at the intersections that we will begin to make sense and make use of a media revolution well underway and yet incompletely understood by our educational infrastructure. This conference will highlight the role of media literacy educators’ capacity to take a leading role in this nationwide task.

We are looking for proposals from media literacy educators, advocates, and researchers who use media as the backbone to teaching and who guide students to a thorough understanding of how to practice creative production and critical analysis ethically and responsibly across media.

Submissions are welcomed in any of the five session formats: Workshop (choice of 60 or 90 minute session); Poke, Prod, Provoke Panels (60 minute session, 3-4 panelists); Media Literacy Smackdown (2 minute presentation); What Works: Gimme the Skinny (10 minute presentation); or Fireside Chats (choice of 60, 90 or 120 minute session).

The Conference Program Committee will accept proposal submissions until 11:59 PM PST January 7, 2013. All proposals must be submitted through our 2013 Conference Proposal form. Proposals will undergo rigorous review by a committee of NAMLE members.
