Use All the Tools! Creating a Digital Space for a Center for Teaching and Learning

Wednesday, March 28 | 11:15AM–12:00PM ET | Ballroom D/E
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
Come learn how we recently launched a collaboratively developed digital space for our teaching and learning resources: the Center for Teaching and Learning. In this session, we will discuss the decision-making process that led us to choose the Springshare LibGuides CMS as our hosting platform, and the strengths and challenges of it from our different perspectives, experiences, and responsibilities within the project. You will also learn how we used faculty input (from focus groups and card sorts), an inventory of preexisting content, teaching and learning scholarship, and LibGuides design best practices to shape the CTL's digital space.

Outcomes: Learn strategies for soliciting and integrating faculty perspectives into an iterative design process * Become familiar with some of the functionalities, features, and solutions offered by the Springshare LibGuides CMS * Identify the strengths and challenges of managing a cross-departmental and cross-campus project
