Walking in Their Shoes: A Student-Centred Approach to Academic Practice
Danielle Cooper at Trinity College Dublin
Danielle Cooper is leading the inaugural user experience seminar at Trinity College Library on Thursday, September 14. This event is open to Trinity College students and staff, who may register through Eventbrite.
From the time they receive their research assignment to the time they submit their final work, not much is known about how students actually research. Are they researching alone or in groups and how and where does that research take place? How are they engaging with the Library and university services now and how can we harness our understanding of this to improve what we do into the future?
The Library of Trinity College Dublin is committed to capturing the student voice; our strategic plan states that we will “think like our users and understand our users’ changing expectations and behaviours.”
Being a “learning-centric” university is a central part of the renewed Trinity Education. Our focus on teaching and learning and commitment to using data to inform how university services are designed and delivered, will help us achieve that mission.
Our guest speaker for this inaugural user experience seminar is Danielle Cooper. Danielle will explore how libraries are “learning from students” in order to develop services that strengthen the university’s mandate in the information-age.
