Positioning the University Library in the New Learning Environment
Jamieson, Peter
Planning for Higher Education, v34 n1 p5-11 Sep-Nov 2005
Universities worldwide are reconfiguring their campus environments to respond to the emerging pedagogy within higher education with its emphasis on self-directed, collaborative, and problem-solving approaches to learning. In particular, there is an emphasis on forming "learning communities." In this context libraries are increasingly required to accommodate learning that is more active, collaborative, and that involves considerable use of communication and information technology (CIT) in spaces previously consigned to passive, individual learning. Drawing on the author's involvement as a member of the design team, this article examines the approach at one Australian university library to align its spaces and facilities to meet the emerging pedagogy within higher education.
