Would you like to create a new learning space for your library? Do you want to increase your understanding and application of experiential learning opportunities for your community? As libraries transition from places of content consumption to places of content creation, our physical spaces and programs should reflect and promote this type of active learning. Many libraries have implemented learning spaces focused on making or content creation, but developing a space is not a one size fits all process. This course will provide theoretical and practical frameworks for the development and evaluation of new learning spaces that are focused on community need and interest. Additionally, learners will be able to identify opportunities to implement digital media labs and maker components into existing spaces in their libraries.
In this course, learners will:
- Assess community need to determine which types of learning spaces could benefit their community
- Understand how to identify, design, implement, and manage experiential learning spaces in their library
- Evaluate learning spaces for iterative design practice
In this course, you will examine a variety of makerspaces and digital media labs in public, school, and university libraries to help determine which learning space model can best be adapted for your specific library and community.
Course Description: During this four-week online course, learners will become familiar with experiential learning spaces in libraries and how these spaces fulfill the library’s mission of learning.
