Joan Petit, Nathan Mealey, and Amy Hofer to Present at EDUCAUSE West/Southwest Regional Conference

Date: 10/28/2011
Three University Library faculty and staff will present at the EDUCAUSE West/Southwest Regional Conference February 2012. Joan Petit, Humanities and Social Sciences Librarian, and Nathan Mealey, Manager of Library Technologies, have been accepted to present in the Ideas & Innovations Showcase. The focus of their presentation is on Millar Library’s new Learning Ground and, in particular, the Sandbox. The Sandbox is an experimental collaboration space adjacent to the renovated computer lab on the first floor. This space will offer a range of technologies aimed at fostering student collaboration, including wall-embedded LCD displays, touch-screen monitors, floor-to-ceiling writeable wall surfaces and whiteboards, and a variety of seating and workspaces. The space is currently under construction and expected to open at the start of Winter 2012 term. Visit our Learning Ground page at to find out more about the project. Amy Hofer, Distance Learning Librarian, will present a poster session titled "Taking the library to the LMS: A collaborative solution for online classrooms."
