The Global Society for Online Literacy Educators (GSOLE) welcomes proposals for its sixth online interactive conference convening live on Friday, February 3, 2023.

Online literacy education is an enduring and emerging field of practice and research. As we gather our community after experiencing emergency remote instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to take stock of what we’ve learned, what has changed, and what remains the same. Conference presenters and participants represent a wide variety of educational contexts (e.g., K-12 schools, two-year colleges, graduate and professional programs, and tutoring and writing centers). We especially encourage presentations that help teachers, tutors, and administrators better understand how to incorporate overt instruction about antiracism and social justice into online writing and literacy curricula and programming at all levels. Proposals are due Sunday, October 30, 2022.

Presentation types include…

  • Panel Proposals (40-minute live presentations across 3-5 presenters)
  • Individual Paper Proposals (15-minute live presentations)
  • Individual Praxis Posters (5-minute prerecorded presentations and an accompanying praxis poster)
  • ePortfolio Gallery Submissions (5-minute prerecorded ePortfolio tours)

To learn more, please read the full call for proposals, including the proposal scoring rubric and example proposals. If you have questions, please email gro.elosg@secnerefnoc for additional information.
