Lightning strike session presented at WILU 2012 with Sona Macnaughton at MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta on May 24, 2012.

Abstract: Human Libraries are taking place all over the world as a means of bringing communities together to share diverse experiences and encourage understanding. At Red Deer College, librarians have discovered that using this event concept specifically as a professional development tool encourages dialogue and fosters growth and innovation in teaching and learning practices. This presentation will address the process librarians went through to organize and host this event, and the resulting benefits shared among teaching staff and student participants. Learn about how your own institution can encourage both instructors and students to take on the role of “living books” reflecting upon and sharing their teaching and learning strategies and inspiring their peers.

Post-Event Survey

I wish I had more time to take out all the books!

Thank you so much for taking the time to create this type of event and thinking outside the box ...

I spent much more time at the event than I originally anticipated, because it was so interesting.

“A Human what…?”:

“What’s in it for me?”
