Library student experience

Listening, Learning and Leading: transforming Curtin students’ Library experience

Early in 2013 Curtin University introduced a University-wide strategic initiative to transform learning entitled Learning for Tomorrow. In response to this initiative, Curtin University Library introduced the Listening, Learning and Leading: Transforming the Curtin Student Library Experience Program, designed to align with students’ experiences of a transformed learning approach.

The Program is underpinned by concepts of universal design in relation to access to resources and facilities, and digital literacy as a key component of the learning content provided by Library.
