​Learning Commons at the CBE

Today’s learners cannot imagine life without the internet and supporting technology. The concept of the traditional library is changing to include technology, online tools and spaces for collaboration and exploration.​​​

Our Learning Commons

The learning commons provides rigorous, academic “learning events” that are designed to facilitate knowledge construction in a wide variety of courses that include core academics.

All students have access to the Learning Commons. It is a collaborative area that provides high demand technologies, digital and print resources and professional learning supports for student knowledge creation.

While in the learning commons, students will participate in an adult culture that includes industry representatives, teachers, career practitioners, community members, guest educators and career related events. The Learning Commons is also the launch pad from which students may extend their learning beyond the traditional school environment and make the necessary connections to the industries and event that will further engage them in career goals.

High touch, high technology devices required for projects, peer – peer instruction, seminars, research and presentations are available for students at the circulation desk.
