Facilitating Collaborative Engagement

Facilitating Collaborative Engagement to Cultivate and Empower a Community of Learners

The library learning commons plays a key role in cultivating and facilitating collaboration to provide rich experiential learning opportunities. It provides not only a physical space to develop skills and engage learners, but is also a portal to virtual connections, both local and global.  It is important to acknowledge the diverse needs and contributions of all players within the school learning commons community, both in terms of resource formats and access to information and collaboration opportunities. Local, regional and global connections and collaborations are a vital part of progressive, future-oriented learning environments.
