Date(s) - Nov 15 2018
3:00 pm - 3:30 pm


A group of NNYLN member librarians from the HS to College Interest Group is discussing ways in which to facilitate communication among high school, public and academic librarians to help students successfully transition from high school to college. As a result of this discussion, the HS to College Interest Group came up with the idea of doing “lightning talks” once a month through Zoom hosted by NNYLN. These will be short 15-minute presentations followed by 15 minutes for open discussion among participants about a project, an experience, collaboration or anything you feel others involved with library instruction in the Northern New York would like to know. If you are interested in presenting a lightning talk, please email Christi (christi@nnyln.org).

Fall Lightning Talk Schedule and Topics:

  • October 18 – Michelle Bishop from SUNY Oswego will talk about current HS collaborations. Michelle writes: I’m excited to share some of the high school and college collaborations happening here at SUNY Oswego. My hope is to help others identify opportunities for regional collaborations that support successful transitions for students from high school to college.
  • November 15 – What can the HS librarian do to prepare students to transition out of HS into college and careers?  This short talk will discuss proactive measures such as cultivating local partnerships and collaborations, becoming your own best advocate for change within the school and share some resources that impact student learning. Presented by Melissa Balk from Thousand Islands High School.
  • December 20 – Laura Harris from SUNY Oswego will speak about open educational resources (OER) which are freely available resources that can be reused, revised, remixed, and redistributed! I’ll share some great places to find OER, particularly K-12 resources.
