Andersen Library is involved with three of the posters that will be displayed in the University Center for the first ever observance of LEAP (Liberal Education America’s Promise) Day on Feb. 29. See the full schedule of events online.
Although the posters will be on display all day in the UC’s Hamilton Center, project members will be available to talk about their work from 3-4:30 p.m.:
- The Library’s LEAP team, consisting of four reference librarians and a student, will have a poster about their information literacy project.
- Another reference librarian is part of a general education team managing a blog for Core Course instructors, and they will have a poster about the “Connecting the Core” blog.
- A reference librarian is also part of a team working on critical thinking/information literacy assessment that came out of the July 2011 General Education Assessment Summit.
In addition to going around to see all of the LEAP-related projects represented on posters, I am especially interested in the national webinar in which employers will talk about a liberal education (time: 12:20-2:30 p.m., location: UC275).
See you there!
