Since the BCTLA conference in October, I have had many phone calls and e-mails regarding our "wall words" in the Fraser Heights Learning Commons. At least once a week I am replying to an inquiry about them. Sorry, everyone!

Este artigo explora em profundidade os fatores que levam ao sucesso dos mecanismos de co-ensino, entre bibliotecários e outros profissionais da informação. Baseando-se em pesquisas colaboração da Fundação Wilder, este estudo constatou que as relações de sucesso no co-ensino são caracterizadas por fatores relacionados  com o meio ambiente, parcerias, processos e estrutura, a comunicação, a finalidade, recursos e considerações externas / longo prazo. Dentro destas sete áreas, são dadas diretrizes para relacionamentos de sucesso no co-ensino para uso por bibliotecários e outros profissionais da informação. "

Great approaches.Teacher librarians should be responsive to the return to inquiry learning and help restore passion to teaching and joy to learning. TLs have all the tools, spaces and skill sets to help! Make the Learning Commons whole school.

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, September 17, 2013 2:53 AM

Being fully student centred is certainly a crucial key to inquiry learning.
