The Virtual Learning Commons: The Online Force of the Library/Learning Commons

In this workshop we will share our journey of creating a virtual learning commons (VLC) template for our district, what we have learned since then, and explore strategies for getting all school community stakeholders to engage with this virtual space. 

We will share our slidedeck and will provide a template for brainstorming things you should include and/or consider as you work to build/tweak your own VLC.

    Tanya Phillips

    Tanya lives to initiate change and welcomes new challenges. She was a classroom high school science teacher for 15 years prior to opening the Library/Learning Commons at Royal Bay Secondary, a new high school in the Sooke School District. Now, into year four, she finally feels that she has some lived experience to share her journey of transitioning a huge empty room to the hub of the school.
