Speaking Experience: I've presented on the topic of academic library engagement in the PA Forward initiative at several PaLA Annual Conferences; as well as the First National Personal Librarian and First-Year Experience Conference (Ohio, 2014), the Lilly International Conference on College and University Teaching and Learning (Maryland, 2015), the Penn State Teaching and Learning with Technology Symposium (2015), the Penn State Library Faculty Organization Research Colloquium (2015), and the Penn State University Libraries Faculty Retreat (2013). I also was invited to speak on this topic for the ACRL Delaware Valley Chapter Spring Program (2015), the PA Forward Civic & Social Literacy Summit (2016), and PA Forward Financial Literacy Summit (2016). I've also been a member of several "cream of the crop" panel discussions on this topic at PaLA conferences.
