Parallel Session 3A (Physical library, learning spaces) Student and Faculty Achievement Programs; Enriching the Library Experience

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The integration of Student Achievement programs (ie: tutoring centers, writing centers and math centers) and Faculty Excellence-in-Teaching programs into a new or newly renovated library is becoming commonplace. With this integration come new opportunities for collaboration between and across academic disciplines and with library staff. This trend will be examined through the lens of an architect, focusing on the following:

  • What are some of the spatial and programmatic models being tested by universities?
  • How can these programs enrich the overall library experience?
  • How can these programs bring faculty and students together in a way that expands and enriches the classroom experience?
  • What are the implications and opportunities for library professionals?
  • What are the potential liabilities?
