Patron-Driven Programming: Creating a Culture of Participatory Learning in Libraries Workshop
A two-part workshop, each session lasts 90 minutes on Wednesdays, October 23 and 30, 2019, starting at 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific both sessions

Participatory learning in libraries involves making experiences more meaningful for patrons, allowing them, as users, to oversee their own learning. These types of experiences provide the opportunity for patron connections that strengthen the community.

In this two-part workshop, participants will learn strategies to define, design, and facilitate participatory experiences and programs by leveraging trends to inspire their communities and welcome shared ownership of library experiences. You’ll learn how to scale programs and spaces for your patrons, no matter your library’s size or budget, to encourage participation by your community.

By participating in this event, you will:

  • Understand what participatory learning and culture is and how it is applicable in a library setting.
  • Learn how to deconstruct traditional methods of programming and infuse participatory elements relevant to their community.
  • Discover how to develop evaluation practices for participatory experiences to capture their impact on the community.
