LIBRARY LEARNING + COMMUNITY
w/ JOAN K. LIPPINCOTT
of the Coalition for Networked Information
Planning for a robust interplay of pedagogies, technologies, and content in renovated library spaces takes intentional effort. In the past decade, libraries have become adept at creating lively spaces for student collaborative activities that balance the traditional quiet, solo study spaces already available.
We will explore opportunities to go further – developing a Learning Commons 3.0 – that will focus on building close relationships with academic programs and teaching faculty through partnerships that leverage new pedagogies, technologies, content, and spaces. Libraries can become learning labs where a wide variety of content is visible and enticing to learners, who then become producers of new knowledge.
Libraries can enable curricular innovation by providing content, services and technologies that serve the entire institution. In addition, libraries continue to serve as a cultural hub of the institution, reflecting the college’s culture, celebrating creativity and art, and welcoming all to interact in a marketplace of ideas.
