SLA2021 Session Review Guidelines

Deadline: 10:00 a.m. ET on Friday, March 12

Attention SLA members! SLA2021 is YOUR conference, so we’re inviting YOU to participate in the planning process. The conference education session proposals are in—more than 130 of them!—and we want to gather as much feedback as possible on them to ensure we present the most relevant and engaging sessions at the conference.

Review Process
The proposals have been grouped into random batches (see above); each batch is a .pdf file that includes between 13 and 16 proposals. SLA members are invited to review the session proposals and provide a rating and comments. This feedback will be included in the final review conducted by the Annual Conference Advisory Council as they make their session recommendations.

Members can review as many batches as they like. We ask that you review each proposal within the batch(es) you select. Each proposal includes the session title, description, time length, level, and learning objectives. To ensure a merit-based review process, proposals do not include submitter or presenter names.

After you read each proposal, you’ll use the survey form to assign it a rating of 1-5 (with 5 being the highest) and provide comments on a survey. In the comments, please concisely explain what you liked or didn’t like about a session or provide a recommendation for a change. Constructive, specific feedback is the most useful for the planning committee.

The survey will ask you which batch(es) you reviewed, then take you to the page to provide feedback for that batch. Please rate only the proposals you reviewed. It may be easiest to take notes and assign ratings as you go through the proposals and then fill in the information on the survey for the entire batch at once.

To verify your SLA membership, you will be asked to provide your name and e-mail address when you begin the survey. You can access the survey more than once, making it easier to review multiple batches.
