Developing a Virtual Community: Co-Creating a 3D Library Learning Commons in Second Life (Learning Technology)

Tuesday, January 20 | 4:00PM–6:00PM | Curacao 1-4
Session Type: Professional Development
Librarians are committed to facilitating collaborative learning in online environments. They recognize the need for innovative ways to stimulate student learning in a digital age in which instruction is not always linked to classrooms or library buildings. This session will present preliminary results of a grant-funded project to create a library learning commons in which students collaborate to explore information literacy topics in the virtual world Second Life. Additionally, the session will provide detail about campus collaborations at San Diego State University that make explorations in information literacy pedagogical redesign possible.
