Learning at the Intersections: Integrating Support for Research, Writing, and Technology (Innovative Practice)

Thursday, January 22 | 9:00AM–10:00AM | Grand Sierra Ballroom H
Session Type: Professional Development
While many institutions are investing in information commons spaces that incorporate thousands of square feet, at Eastern Michigan University we are exploring ways to work together more effectively in just 550 square feet. The Academic Projects Center is a support facility that offers students one-to-one, point-of-need instruction in writing, research, and technology in a compact former classroom space located in the library. We will share both what has been learned by center staff (technologists, librarians, and writing consultants) from working closely with service providers outside their areas of specialization and the knowledge we have gained about student learning.
