Symposium on the Future of Libraries
In recent years public libraries have expanded beyond one-off programs to offer MOOCs, flipped classroom language learning, multi-session skill “camps,” and ongoing reading enrichment. What might these recent developments suggest about the future of learning in public libraries, and how should public libraries position themselves within the larger educational ecosystem? After some brief lightning talks from our panelists on how libraries are thinking about patron learning, we’ll open the session to facilitated group discussions. Attendees should come prepared to discuss what the future may have in store for public libraries and learning.
