Join us on Wednesday, April 17 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the ScholarSpace (2nd Floor, Rm 206) of Hatcher Graduate Library (913 S. University Ave.) for the latest session of the AIM: TRUE Speaker Series.
The AIM: TRUE Speaker Series is a set of talks focused on topics surrounding the residential education experience, hence the name AIM: TRUE, which stands for Academic Innovation at Michigan: Transforming Residential Undergraduate Education. On April 17, we will welcome a group of University of Michigan librarians for a panel discussion.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Title: Library Unbound – Learning Beyond and Across Courses
Abstract: The Big Idea project at Michigan has proposed a set of ambitious learning goals for undergraduate education. Many of these goals are already part of core learning experiences in different ways across campus. We invite you to explore emergent scholarly practices and new possibilities for undergraduates to connect scholarship with real-world challenges. A panel of U-M librarians will highlight recent faculty and student collaborations designed to transform the way undergraduates interact with the university research enterprise. A shared approach and strong partnerships are leading to curricular innovations, experimentation with novel uses of technologies, realization of new ways to strengthen inclusion and diversity, and invention of creative approaches for new kinds of educational experiences. What innovations and experiments might advance positive change? What values and visions of the purposes of education offer a compass with which to navigate the shoals and storms of the present moment?
