Library Learning Spaces Design Replay

with live interactive chat with your host, Karen Bonanno

Content presented by Anne Whisken, Head of Library, Carey Baptist Grammar School

  

Library Learning Spaces exist in both the physical and digital. Design of one should echo the other in the sense that use of each is a deliberate choice after the question: what information or reading resource or physical space or eLearning technology or expert guidance best suits the learning that we want to take place?

 

Physical library spaces are the focus of this session, and although what you can do in your library differs according to budgets, the questions to be explored are similar, with the basic one being: what can I do with my spaces and furniture arrangements and collections to enhance the learning to take place in my school? Recent research and design of a new library plus several decades of making changes in existing libraries informs the presentation.

 

We will look at defining the learning that can take place in a library, the ways students prefer to learn, and how to design and arrange physical spaces to support that. Pre-thinking for this session: In your school library WWW: What Works Well already, what different library learning spaces does your school need and what are you prepared to give up to create those new spaces and arrangements?

Research for Reflective Practice

with Dr Jennie Bales, Adjunct Lecturer, Charles Sturt University

 

Research informs your profession and your practice. This webinar introduces the concept of research from a practitioner’s perspective and aims to inspire participants to implement their own research project within their field of professional practice.

 

Becoming a more reflective and responsive educator is an integral part of highly accomplished teaching practice. Undertaking your own research project to evaluate programs and initiatives and inform decision-making provides a stimulating and valuable focus for a personal professional learning pathway. This presentation will introduce you to research processes and scaffold some of the key components that will help you design, implement and apply a straightforward and manageable research project in the school or library environment.
