Play It Again, Sam: Engaging Students in Information Literacy with Entertaining Examples -- December 4
Many of us are looking for ways to put life into our instruction sessions. This presentation will give us great ways to engage our students and keep our presentations from being the “same old, same old.”
SU Venture Catalyst, the startup unit of Arizona State University, along with the Scottsdale Public Library system, have started a new initiative for helping inventors, problem-solvers, social enterprises, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. The new Alexandria Network is designed to provide support for the innovation economy within designated public libraries. The Eureka Loft opened in mid-May in the Scottsdale Public Library and offers co-working spaces, mentorship, advice, and access to some "pracademic" classes both online and in the library. Speakers Jim Cook from ASU and Michael Beck from the Scottsdale Public Library will share information on the program start up and community feedback.
