- About the Author
This timely collection provides extensive guidance for both librarians and faculty across all academic disciplines, and will shed much needed light on the impact of the total learning environment – academic, physical, virtual and support –on student learning behavior.
Margaret Weaver and contributors present relevant examples and personal accounts from actual university settings in the U.K. to teach both faculty and students to get the most out of contemporary learning environments. The simple strategies presented in this collection will help those in the academic arena stay organized and productive in an increasingly less structured, more flexible setting. Readers will flourish in academic spaces designed for technology-rich libraries, and will learn to provide the most effective support to e-learners as libraries become increasingly digitized. Transformative Learning Support Models in Higher Education will help foster productive partnerships between students and faculty in these new learning environments.
