Experiential Learning in the Library
This talk will provide a brief overview of constructivism and experiential theories of learning. The work of Chatterjee, Hannan and Thomson in their book "Engaging the Senses: Object-Based Learning in Higher Education," will be viewed through the lens of library services for the STEM and STEAM areas. Information regarding current library services as they concern supporting materials and programs such as makerspaces, fablabs, and tinker-spaces will be explored. This talk will attempt to draw connections between the known pedagogical literature and "real world objects" in libraries.
