Are you planning to attend the ALA Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. in June? If so, you might be interested in extending your stay a few days. The National Association for Media Literacy Education will be holding their conference from June 26-28 in Washington, D.C.
The theme for this year’s NAMLE Conference is “A Path Forward: Elevating Conversation, Unifying Voices.” According to their website, their “mission for the 2019 NAMLE Conference is to provide a platform for including voices from diverse disciplines as we explore the future of media literacy in a rapidly shifting media landscape. In these unprecedented times, we must work together as a community to move forward the field of media literacy. In order to achieve this goal, we have planned a conference with innovative session format and built-in networking opportunities to facilitate the sharing and discussion of new ideas.”
If this sounds like a conference for you, check out their website here for more information, and you can register for it here.
