I’m looking forward to attending the ABQLA Conference in Montreal on May 9th.
I will be speaking about the process of moving from library to learning commons. My main focus continues to be on user-centered design and the user experience. With everything I do, I’m considering the function, look, and feel of each space, service, and resource we provide.
Creating user-centered spaces in your learning commons
The user-centered Learning Commons encourages peer-to-peer learning, experimentation, and collaboration with some of the key innovations that are revolutionizing education, information, and the creation of digital media. This space provides all users with a laboratory to create projects and experiment with new types of learning devices, resources, and tools, especially those that blend the virtual with the physical. The print collection continues to thrive in a “Dewey-Lite” system of display and organization. User-centered Learning Commons reassess through incorporating user-feedback into the flexible and fluid space.
