Course Description

Technology is changing how information is stored and retrieved. In turn, these changes are transforming the nature of libraries and other media spaces. As physical collections shrink in size, the vacated space is being repurposed in exciting new ways, such as teaching users how to be critical consumers of digital information — or fostering creativity and collaboration through the use of innovative makerspaces.

But as school and public media centers assume new instructional roles, it’ s imperative that they meet the learning needs of all users. This means paying close attention to Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles in the design of these physical spaces. In this presentation, you’ ll learn how the role of media centers is evolving — and how the design of these spaces is changing in kind. You’ ll also learn how to create modern media spaces that are accessible to all learners, including those with special needs.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how shifting roles, uses, and technologies are changing the physical composition of media spaces.
  • Understand what UDL is, why it’s important, and how it applies to the design of modern media centers.
  • Learn how the use of proper materials and methods can help create highly accessible, future-ready media spaces.
  • Identify the key elements of a well-designed, future-ready media space that meets the needs of all learners.
