For the OCULA Spring Conference 2020, we invite library workers and instructors from all sectors to join us for "Active Participants: Experiential Learning in Libraries." This conference will explore how both academic and public libraries can provide accessible, experiential learning opportunities to our diverse communities.

Conversations and activities will address questions around how libraries can: 
  • Embed experiential learning in the classroom and public library programs; 
  • Provide experiential learning opportunities in the workplace; 
  • Make experiential learning accessible to all learners through technology; 
  • Facilitate experiential learning in non-traditional library spaces; and
  • Collaborate with community partners to develop novel experiential learning opportunities.
