Following in the footsteps of last year, iConference 2018 will present a number of sessions focused on processes and techniques employed by successful iSchools worldwide. The program will consist of special presentations exploring curriculum, teaching, student experience, research, administrative management and more.
All iSchool member-institutions are invited to submit proposals and case studies to be considered for inclusion in this special program. Proposals must use the official template found here. Ideally, each submission would focus narrowly on a single best-practice topic. There is no limit to the number of submissions a school can make.
Accepted proposals will be presented at iConference 2018, and archived to the conference website after the event.
