WELCOME! Because adult education takes place on many different levels, it is important for speakers to provide attendees with written material to accompany their presentations. Our members expect and value written materials, and this need comprises the majority of comments found in the speaker evaluations each year. Specific, detailed handouts enable audience members to fully focus on the speaker, rather than any lengthy notes they might be trying to jot down.

This site will accept submissions through June 16, 2013.

PLEASE NOTE: Your materials will be included in the online 2013 Educational Program Materials Collection only if you have submitted a Speaking Commitment & Copyright Release Form.

STEP #1 - COLLECTION INFORMATION

The AALL Annual Meeting and Conference 2013 Educational Program Materials Collection will be available online to all conference registrants prior to the conference via AALL2go, AALL's online learning center. Attendees will be able to print and bring to the conference the materials you submit.


STEP #2 - FORMATTING GUIDELINES

To ensure that your work is included in the Collection, please submit your material, following the specifications below, by June 16. You may submit up to three files, but please limit your total submission to no more than twenty pages. If you have any questions regarding any of the guidelines or requirements, please contact Heidi Letzmann at 312/205-8014.

Please provide files that are formatted cleanly and include clear, legible fonts. If you are providing a PowerPoint file, please be mindful of graphics and backgrounds, which do not always print well and often take up a lot of file space. Since all PowerPoint files will be made available to attendees in 3-slides-per-page format, we strongly suggest you print a black-and-white copy of your file in this format and review it for legibility before you upload it. The file you use for your actual presentation in Seattle can, of course, include any graphics or background styles you choose.

You are encouraged to use our conference PowerPoint template, and to review our Presentation Tips.

Acceptable File Formats: MS Word (.docx) and MS PowerPoint (.pptx) created using Office 2007 or older, and PDF
