Reference(s): This intensive came from volunteers from the AMDA AL committee topics/format are FLEXIBLE. Part of the sessions could come from the CEAL AL 2.0 summit and a session at CALA both being held in October (in DC and CA, respectively) I will coordinate the sessions, get the appropriate number of speakers, and make sure there is no duplicate presentation of materials, I am completely at the behest of the Program Committee. There's enough material here for 2 full Thursday Intensives. This can be tailored to one intensive or several stand-alone presentations. Or you don't have to pick any. It is all completely up to you, I am happy to help in any way possible.
