Transcript of Innovative Library Services for the Liberal Arts College Library

What do we mean when we say "liberal arts education?" "Liberal Education" "Freedom" "Excellence" {a wide range of contested meanings hidden inside these words.} Defined by practices, rather than disciplines
Group study/projects
Undergraduate research
Student presentations
Faculty/student collaboration from, "What's So 'Liberal' About Higher Ed?" Jo Ellen Parker, Academic Commons, Sept. 2006. Faculty and students report longer retention of knowledge through creation of media projects, which can be attributed to the combined effect of both affective and cognitive learning. As students create multimedia projects, they intertwine creative expression and critical interpretation and ultimately own and retain the ideas they communicate.
