Canadian Learning Commons Conference 3: Building On Success

UNB Libraries is hosting the third annual Canadian Learning Commons Conference (CLCC) between June 8-10th 2008. We are bringing together an exciting array of speakers from universities and community colleges in the Atlantic Region and beyond – all of whom share our interest in bringing critical research services into one venue for our students.

The program includes a pre-conference workshop, “Success with Assessment,” led by Steve Hiller, Director of Assessment and Planning, at the University of Washington Libraries in Seattle, Washington. The keynote, “Engaging Millennial Students, will be offered by Richard Sweeney, University Librarian at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

Our program will also offer many perspectives in the Learning Commons framework, from on-the-ground participants including libraries, information technology services, writing centres, accessibility services, to those with a broader scope, including university administrators, community college educators, and those who gather student feedback in satisfaction surveys on all aspects of higher education.

We anticipate that the conference will also draw in members of our UNB and STU communities with an interest in learning and teaching. For more information, please take a look at the website //www.lib.unb.ca/CLCC3/
