Teaching Information Literacy Skills Using Creative Play: The Rutgers Art Library Lego Playing Station
Rutgers, the State University of NJ
In September of 2014 the Rutgers University Art Library implemented a Lego® playing station to help stimulate creativity and innovation within the library, as well as a new way to connect with Design students. The author will discuss a collaborative project with 100 freshmen from the Department of Landscape Architecture who experienced the Lego Playing Station as a means to stretch their design skills and to learn more about the libraries and Information Literacy. This presentation will be based off my research and a paper given at ACRL:
