Invitation to Open Forum on the Learning Commons

Dear Colleagues and Students,
_*Open Forum on Learning Commons*_

You are cordially invited to join the Library Open Forum to give us your
ideas on the development plans for the Learning Commons (LC) which will
be created on Library LG1 floor in 2011. Details of the Forum are as
follows:

/ *Date: Monday, 27 September 2010
Time: 3 pm
Place: Library Gallery
http://library.ust.hk/info/maps/blink/gf-lobby.html, G/F
Language: English *//*(Views expressed in Cantonese and
Putonghua are also welcome)*/

As part of the space planning for 334, the Library has been working
towards building a student-oriented Learning Commons where it will
bring together services and facilities to support learning and teaching
at the University. The LC will provide a variety of learning and study
spaces as well as an e-learning Lab and a refreshment zone. Services
will be provided in a way that builds on the strength of various
academic support units, including Center for Enhanced Learning and
Teaching (CELT), Information Technology Services Center (ITSC), Language
Centre, Library, Publishing Technology Center (PTC) and Student Affairs
Office (SAO). While the Library is actively working with FMO and the
design firm on the layout plans and furniture options, we would very
much like to hear your views and expectations about this new learning hub.
