Does Your Library Space Participate in Learning?

Sullivan3Summer can be a great time to take a step back to consider your library space. In Library Design for Learning, Margaret L. Sullivan challenges us to look at the library space in a new way. She asks, “What if we ask more of our buildings?” “What if we ask them to participate in the pedagogy that they support?”

This 8-part video workshop shows you how changes to your library space can enhance student learning. Whether your focus is inquiry, direct instruction, blended learning, or something else, she shows how big or small changes to your space can help make the most of your efforts.
