Make time in your busy SLA 2012 schedule to check out some of this year's Spotlight Sessions. These high-profile events, which take place on the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of the conference, are the result of the collaboration of two or more SLA units and promise to be can't-miss conference experiences.
What might you learn about while attending a Spotlight Session on Monday, July 16? The scandal surrounding Wikileaks, the importance of knowledge development and knowledge services (KD/KS) in your organizaton, the ROI around content purchasing, and skills reinvention in a tough economy and job market.
Join the crowd on Tuesday, July 17, for sessions on e-discovery through data mapping, cross-cultural competitive intelligence practices, and the ever-popular 60 apps in 60 minutes (updated for 2012!), plus a unique improv look at workplace problem-solving.
Not to be outdone, Wednesday, July 18, brings conference attendees information on self-assessment and demonstration of value, 21st century competencies (such as communications and technology literacy, critical thinking, and global awareness), and learning perspectives and skills development in LIS programs and beyond.
See you in Chicago!
