How libraries can create peer learning environments to support new literacies development

While online learning is often accompanied by the promise that “anybody can learn anything online”, the majority of learners (ourselves included!) find online learning environments difficult, confusing, intimidating, and overwhelming. In this interactive session, we will explore the ways that libraries can design programs and services to make online learning more equitable and engaging, regardless of a patron’s prior learning experience. To do this, we’ll employ a design approach that University of Washington uses to co-design new technologies and learning activities in libraries for children, with children.

For 90 minutes, we’ll uncover online learning programs’ shortcomings through interactive critique methods applied to existing online learning resources, and brainstorm ways to design programs that address or compensate for these hurdles. We’ll discuss tactics that have worked for our colleagues, including volunteer facilitation, peer-supported learning, remixing Open Educational Resources (OER), and developing community partnerships. This session will be facilitated by practitioners from Chicago Public Library (USA), Nakuru Public Library (Kenya), Peer 2 Peer University, and the University of Washington Information School (USA).
