Library Spaces: (digital) brains and bodies?

 This resource is a contribution to the University of Manchester Library's annual "Together" Conference on 15 June 2023.


In this session we will introduce the concept of embodied learning and the psychologisation of digital learning. This debate will then be opened to participants to discuss how these practices raise questions of approaches to teaching, learning and the student experience in the Library. Questions which could be worked through are: Do our bodies play a part in the ways that we construct knowledge? How can a confrontation with the digital ask us to re-think how and where learning occurs?

This interactive breakout session hopes to provoke debate around the creation of educational spaces within the Library and work through assumptions and frameworks as to learners and their practices within these spaces.
