Reinventing learning spaces | Learning with 'e's

Reinventing learning spaces | Learning with 'e's | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

My most recent blog post, Hi-Tech Campus? highlighted the need for better design of learning spaces in higher education, but the principle applies to all educational environments. I outlined some inherent problems in my own university campus, and asked others on Twitter to suggest what they thought the campus of the future might look like. Actually, the campus of the future, wherever that may be, is already being reinvented right now, and the present and the future are blurring. The need for students to be able to access their content, peers and tutors at any time and in any place necessitates redesign of many environments around a typical university or school campus.

Why librarians (and therefore librarys) will always be better than Wikipedia. 

Why librarians (and therefore librarys) will always be better than Wikipedia.  | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it
As librarians we protect our services, collections, and patrons from censorship and bias. Simply put- We do not allow it. From too much left or right wing material to too much sci-fi or mystery.

In some of the workshops I run there's a section where we look at marketing
with video - and people suggest good and bad examples of the art of library
video. We watch a few, critique them, try to extract something meaningful
we can apply to our own future videos.

Last time I did this, for UKeIG this month, someone posted a video I'd not
seen before - Texas A&M University Libraries' take on Pharrell's video for
Happy. I'm sure you've heard the song Happy - the video for it has 519
