2019 Annual Program
Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences
Friday, June 21, 2019 | 9:15 am - 3:15 pm
New England Institute of Technology, East Greenwich, RI
As traditional ideas about pedagogy and library involvement in student learning grow in complexity, librarians are exploring new instructional approaches. Student-centered learning is a guiding principle that calls for a shift in the focus of instruction from the teacher to the needs and knowledge of students. This approach requires librarians to be intentional about centering classroom activities on student learning.
Please note that we won't be using disposable water bottles this year, so we encourage you bring a reusable water bottle!
