Developing Independent Learners: The Box Hill School Experience
Pavey, Sarah
International Association of School Librarianship, Paper presented at the School Library Association of Queensland and the International Association of School Librarianship Conference incorporating the International Forum on Research in School Librarianship (Brisbane, QLD, Australia, Sep 27-Oct 1, 2010)
Box Hill School is an independent school in Surrey, England. In 2008 the English curriculum was abandoned in favour of the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBD). A library is a statutory requirement of the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) endorsement who also recommend this be managed by a qualified teacher-librarian. In May 2008, I was employed to create a library and develop independent learning throughout the school. This paper considers the rationale behind the physical design. It outlines the implementation of independent learning in an international school community where no infrastructure to promote this style of teaching and learning previously existed.
