Do you have a sample proposal that "aces" all of the required criteria that you can share?
PLA Webinars
59:11
Juliane and Angela: I really love the new variety of learning formats!
Jessica Hall
59:31
We want to do a panel. Is there space in the proposal to put everyone's names and bios?
Darla Wegener
01:00:14
Difficult to see on my screen. Will these be available in a PDF or online so I can enlarge.
PLA Webinars
01:00:18
Can we share the TOC chart with the recording, Angela?
Violet Fox

Can those descriptions of the session formats be added to the list available on the website here? https://www.placonference.org/proposal_preview.cfm
Angela Maycock

Unfortunately no
PLA Webinars
01:03:27
We can add learning format descriptions to the proposal preview though, right, as per Violet Fox request?
Angela Maycock
01:03:39
yes!
Brianne Anderson
01:03:57
What about if our idea could be adapted to a panel, Case study, or peer sharing. Can we submit it saying that or do we need to pick one?
Angela Maycock
01:04:20
Great questions, folks! Please keep them coming!
Rachel Hadidi
01:04:42
will you pair similar presentations proposals if you think it will make a stronger presentation?

If there's two presnters, does that count as a panel?

^^great example of a successful proposal and, ultimately, program
Tonya Palmer

Public speaking is definitely my kryptonite
Emily Dagg
01:20:02
Another reason to present: to pass your knowledge along to the next generation of librarians, before you retire. Our job is to help grow new librarians.
Nathan Flinchum
01:20:39
Amen to that! Stealing ideas is something we do really well :) Nothing comes from whole cloth...

Great questions! Keep 'em coming!
Sue Miller

Tonya, it gets better after practice and finding your style, the one that works for you. I still get very nervous.
Darla Wegener
01:34:19
What examples for a presentation to be interactive (more attendee focused) for such large rooms at PLA?
Nan Carmack

PLA Webinars
01:36:42
Submit your questions to "All panelists and attendees" here in Chat.
John Klima
01:37:04
Was there an official name for the 7-5-3 method or is that just something Nathan does for himself?
John Klima
01:37:18
(I missed some of the discussion because someone stopped in my office to ask me questions)
Sharra Rosichan
01:37:18
When you speak of diversity in presenters, was gender identity included for that?
Nathan Flinchum
01:37:52
7-5-3 was how I found it named many years ago! Unfortunately I can't point to the original source
Nathan Flinchum
01:38:31
I have tweaked the process over the years but the idea of multiple iterative steps to focus ideas remains the same
John Klima
01:40:35
Thanks Nathan!
