AcadeMAKE, Call for Proposals

AcadeMAKE will be a free one-day conference focusing on making and makerspaces within an academic campus environment. It hopes to bridge the gap between play and application. Sessions will include use cases, creations, idea sharing and academic research.

The first AcadeMAKE conference is a collaborative effort between the School of Education (SOE) and UNCG Libraries staffs with the support of a State of North Carolina LSTA grant.

We encourage people from any field to submit proposals on any topic related to academic making (especially those in libraries). Academic, public, school and special librarians; teachers in K-12; academic faculty; and local makers are all encouraged to submit proposals. Presentation options: 45-minute panels/research talks, 5-10 minute lightning rounds, poster/show and tell session. Sign up to attend and submit a proposal (same form) here.

Presenters will know of acceptance by Dec. 12.
