Description

JMU’s Libraries & Educational Technologies (LET) recently reorganized to bring previously siloed services together in one unit. This presentation will examine several class assignments that illustrate how this reorganization is transforming how LET supports non-traditional forms of scholarship in the classroom. The typical workflow starts with a kickoff meeting and ends with a public event celebrating the students’ work. Throughout the semester, LET staff provide instructional design consultations, training workshops, makerspaces and VR rooms, specialized equipment, and a publication platform. LET is able to embed its people and technologies in the classroom and simultaneously bring more students into its public spaces.

Learning Outcomes

    • Describe the digital assignment lifestyle;

    • Outline ways to restructure organizational units to support that lifecycle;

    • Identify strategies and resources for incorporating non-traditional scholarship in the classroom; and
