Designing Learning Environments to Support Participatory Learning
Active and knowledgeable involvement in participatory learning is a necessary competence for today’s learners. Learning commons spaces, collections and tools are changing in response to this paradigm shift…A learning commons can provide both the physical and virtual learning environments as well as provide the supports necessary for the student to be an active participatory learner.
Below is a list of blog posts that should be helpful in implementing this standard.
