Programme Bibliotheksdienst 42. Jg. (2008), H. 8/9 921 Learning Spaces, Working Places: the library as a learning centre Internationales Bibliothekssymposium Termin: 01.–03. Oktober 2008 Ort: Dronten, Niederlande Veranstalter: Goethe-Institut, Vlaams Centrum voor Openbare Bibliotheken VCOB und Vereniging van Openbare Bibliotheken VOB Die Veranstaltung wird in englischer Sprache abgehalten und besteht aus einer interessanten Mischung von Vorträgen, Panel-Diskussionen, Besichtungen und Gruppenarbeit. Schwerpunkte werden sein: • Exploring the library’s new learning role in the local community In many European countries, public libraries need to rethink the fulfilment of their mission and strengthen their position in society. At the same time, that society is rapidly changing, forcing its members to continuously update their knowledge and skills. Learning after formal school years becomes imperative. Likewise, those migrating from other countries, those seeking a new or differ- ent job are looking for opportunities. Interests in learning a language and cul- ture have many different backgrounds. Adults have different learning styles. How are they addressed? The learning landscape is changing; both formal and informal learning include new methods, blended learning; personalised and group settings for learning. In what learning context can the library’s role, and its characteristic non-formal learning function, be tied to the local com- munity needs? • Reshaping the library as a learning centre An analysis of the library’s learning role is a starting point. How can the next steps be taken from a management point of view, to really make a shift and turn the library into a learning centre? The library needs to establish partners in the learning community. How will the library acquire and present learning materials, especially for e-learning based on licenses for digital content? How is the library adapting to the different ways of learning of e.g. immigrants, senior citizens and the new generation of learners? What consequences are taken in the field of new staff competencies. For these two areas, we chal- lenge both the theoretical framework and the good practices. Kosten: 195,– € exkl.
