THE EVOLUTION OF EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING FOR DIVERSITY EDUCATION IN A LIBRARY SCIENCE PROGRAM THROUGH SHORT-TERM GLOBAL EXPERIENCES

Andrew J. M. SMITH [1]


The professional standards of library and information science organizations emphasize the importance of diversity education in the preparation of new information professionals. Short-term global experiences can enhance diversity education in library science programs. The evolution of one program is described, as it moved from observation-based trips, through service learning, with students as experts, to its current interactive learning model. Assessment of student learning is now conducted by a three part process that includes individual reflection, small group work and whole group discussion
