Webinar: Recollection Development
December 6, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-6$45
This webinar will explore a qualitative assessment method that has been used for understanding wayfinding and space planning in libraries, but deserves consideration in reference and instruction: cognitive mapping. Cognitive mapping allows users to write or draw the library as they know it and experience it. From a user perspective, librarians gain a glimpse into what library users recall and value about the library. This webinar will support dialogue around and provide lessons learned about using cognitive maps to alter reference and instruction practices to meet our library users’ needs. Cognitive mapping is a a great way to start using qualitative assessments within the library and provides users with an engaging learning activity that can span multiple library areas and academic disciplines.
