The inaugural group of Special Collections Learning Lab students participated in a panel presentation and exhibit highlighting their research. During the panel, interns Sarah Hayden, Lane Springer, and Jeffrey Witt responded to discussion questions about their Learning Lab projects and experiences. Ruth Bryan, Director of Archives, moderated the panel. Afterwards, all were invited to the opening reception to browse the exhibit created by the Learning Lab interns about their projects.
The new SC Learning Lab is a center of primary research, experiential learning, and training. Targeting undergraduate students in the humanities, social sciences, and arts, the lab promotes undergraduate research, scholarship, and creativity and more fully integrates Special Collections into the teaching and research mission of the University. The 2012-2013 interns have enhanced access to several key collections, built upon their existing research interests, and presented on their findings.
Stay tuned to the Special Collections blog, "Curiosities and Wonders," for postings from each intern reflecting on their year-long Learning Lab experience.
