OASL Fall Conference
October 12-13 2018
Wilsonville High School 

Greeting Oregon School Librarians (and Friends):

Now that OLA is over, and you are still on your conference high, it’s time to think about what you’d like to present at OASL in October (yay!) to help move our profession forward.

This year, we are organizing Saturday breakout and poster sessions around the newly released AASL Standards’ Shared Foundations and Learning categories, expressed as domains. This will help ensure we offer a variety of themes and subjects, as well as assist attendees in choosing sessions.

Your proposal should connect to one of the Shared Foundations and Key Commitments of school librarians: Inquire, Include, Collaborate, Curate, Explore, or Engage (or a combination of these).

Also, the session or poster should be learner-centered, and help our students or adult learners Think, Create, Share, or Grow.

More information about these Shared Foundations, Key Commitments, and Learning Domains can be found on the proposal survey

Please email Stacy Erickson or Len Bryan with any questions you may have!
