AMICAL 2023 will take place 24–26 May 2023 at Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane, Morocco. This will mark the consortium’s 20th annual conference!
The AMICAL Conference brings together staff and faculty from the consortium’s 30 international liberal arts institutions. AMICAL members and invited experts share their challenges, solutions and inspiration for improving libraries, technology and pedagogy in our uniquely international and intercultural environments.
Registration will open in February 2023. We’ll post additional details about the program, financial support opportunities, accommodation, and the venue at that time.
The Call for Proposals is now closed.
Keynotes from invited international speakers, combined with a majority of sessions led by AMICAL members themselves, will create an event mixing global perspectives with local relevance.
Member-contributed sessions will include dynamic presentations, interactive sessions and workshops to address collaborative approaches to topics such as:
- Leadership in libraries, academic technology and centers for learning & teaching
- Information, digital & other literacies
- Digital pedagogy and scholarship
- Open education & scholarship
- Cost reduction for library and information resources
- And other topics that the Program Committee has identified as important
Drawing on feedback from key stakeholders across the consortium, the program will include a strong component of networking, helping to cultivate collaborative relationships among the target audience.
The conference will give particular focus to colleagues who see themselves as change agents, intending to have a broad impact on their institution or the consortium in the areas of libraries, academic technology and pedagogy. These colleagues may include:
- library directors
- faculty development coordinators
- writing center coordinators
- instruction librarians
- instructional technologists and designers
- coordinators of First Year Experience programs
- IT directors
- academic leadership
- leaders of AMICAL committees, projects, and initiatives
The program will be of special interest to colleagues interested in collaborating with their peers across AMICAL, or who can inform that collaborative work in some way.
Our sponsorship program will invite vendors of products related to libraries, learning and technology. Vendors interested in connecting with Conference attendees can let us know by sending an email to email@example.com and we’ll follow up with you once we finalize the details of the sponsorship program.
