Learning Commons seeks input from Queen's community


The Queen’s Learning Commons (QLC) offers an inviting, collaborative learning space where students can pursue and share ideas in an enriched learning environment. As the Learning Commons celebrates its 5th anniversary, the QLC partners are asking members of the Queen’s community to provide feedback about what the Learning Commons has already accomplished, and what its priorities should be moving forward.

“The Commons really is a place for active learning, and it brings together students who have a chance to work in a multidisciplinary way,” says Sharon Murphy, Head of the Library Academic Services Division. “It’s time to take a look and see what we’re doing, if we’re doing what we intended to do. The more responses we get the better idea we’ll have of what Queen’s wants us to be doing next.”

Located on the ground floor of Stauffer Library, the Learning Commons’ academic support services and resources are provided by five partners: the Library; IT Services; Learning Strategies Development; Library Services for Students with Disabilities; and the Writing Centre. Thousands of students use the QLC each year participating in workshops, individual consultations, peer mentoring, collaboration and the annual Inquiry@Queen’s Undergraduate Research Conference.

Queen’s community members are being asked to complete a short survey; it’s available in two forms – one for undergraduate and graduate students, and another for faculty, staff, and administration.

Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey before Monday, April 11 and help guide the future direction of the Queens’s Learning Commons. For more information on the QLC, visit the website.
