Special Project: Experiential Learning in International Education - Library Sciences

Florence University of the Arts - The American University of Florence

Course Description

This special project is an excellent opportunity for the student to understand institutional library systems. Working under the supervision of the library staff, students will perform circulation maintenance routines such as check-in/check-out and book processing and deadlines, shelving, and usage statistics. Additional duties include but are not limited to administrative and technical tasks.

This special project course features experiential learning hours with our Community Engagement Member Institutions (CEMI). CEMI are dynamic learning environments created to foster learning through a structured interaction with the community. Students will be involved in learning by doing through real projects and integration with the local population and territory in order to remove cultural and learning barriers as well as to develop a strong likelihood for success in life. The experiential learning hours are fully supervised by instructors who track students step by step during their learning experience, monitor and advise according to student needs, and support student initiative. This unique learning model allows students to benefit from an all-encompassing educational experience based on theory and practice in real enterprises, learning of comprehensive operational processes, problem-solving, leadership, and management.
