Map Unavailable

Date(s) - Feb 28 2019 - May 9 2019
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 are 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).

Lightning Talk Schedule and Topics:

  • February 28: Stephanie Pritchard from SUNY Oswego will present Using Scaffolded Assignments in Writing Classes  
    When students do research, they tend to look for sources first and then design their own writing based on information they have already found. Scaffolded writing assignments help students understand their own metacognitive processes and also help slow down the writing process. This discussion will focus on the first two sections of a six-part writing assignment I use in a freshman writing class.
  • April 25: Michelle Oakes from Salmon River Central Middle School will talk about Project Based Learning.
  • May 9: Carl Andrews, Reference & Instruction Librarian at the Bronx Community College, will speak about the recent LACUNY Institute 2019 (May 3, 2019) and highlight relevant content concerning relevant to college readiness and high school/college collaborations.
