More information:

LIPS specifically focuses on live, interactive planetarium lessons: connecting with your audience; enhancing performance skills; classroom management techniques; sample activities.

  • This is not a full-dome movie festival; instead it focuses on skills and techniques for live lessons. While there are vendor demonstrations, these are live, interactive teaching demonstrations. Vendors, sponsor information will be posted in early 2014.
  • The attendees choose what is on the schedule. How do they do this? By proposing a session they wish to lead, requesting a session to be led by someone else, and finally by choosing which sessions they want to attend. Note: Attendees must first register in order to propose, request, or choose sessions; registration will open in mid-February, 2014. 
  • There will be no true "lectures" at LIPS 2014; all sessions should be interactive. Prospective presenters: Remember that attendees are coming to LIPS because they do (or want to start to do) live, interactive lessons. This audience wants to actively take part in sessions, not observe passively.
