The Commons

The Commons is a space for interprofessional development, discussion, and innovation. A broad community of librarians, instructional designers, teaching experts, and technology leaders can connect here in support of educational goals. 

We invite you to think about The Commons as a space to activate your creative and innovative ideas.
