2018 / Universities are an Endangered Species. Long live the Library!

Members: 4
Latest Activity: Sep 9, 2018


Should libraries replace universities? Using a hyper-participatory debate process, Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU) will support session participants to debate this issue and explore ways in which libraries can and/or should take on a larger role as centers of education. The debate will transition into a group activity where we document the strengths and weaknesses of learning at the library, map what libraries can and can’t do to become stronger leaders in the field of education, and share programs that participants are running at their libraries that break into the world of formal education. P2PU will also offer an overview of their work with Next Library partner sites in Africa, Europe, North America called "learning circles": face-to-face study groups that meet in libraries on a weekly basis to work through online courses together.
