Explore the principles of human centred design as a way of understanding how a school’s community feels about the experiences they have in their library.
Give examples of how school leaders can support these changes and scaffold links between their school and the wider Library community.
Look at the role of physical and virtual libraries to support future focused education, teaching and learning.
Explore what you build in, and what do you leave behind and discuss whether school libraries can be all things to all people all the time and should they even try?
It will be of interest to teachers, librarians and leaders who are wanting to develop and grow a future focused library service and space for their community, and increase the teaching and learning connections for their learners.
Through a selection of user experience and design thinking techniques we will identify barriers your school community may be experiencing in using the school library to its full potential. We will holistically explore the ways library spaces and services can evolve and have greater connections with teaching and learning happening in school and in the wider school community.
