The dominant discourses that have emerged out of the current historical context of higher education not only give shape to the places where we learn and work but they also influence the formation of identity, experience, and the production of new information and culture. These discourses, to a large extent, determine:

  • What is learned?
  • What forms of knowledge and learning are credible?
  • What learning processes are deemed acceptable?
  • Who will be allowed a voice in this process?
  • Whose voices are validated and on what conditions?

This session will provide panelists and delegates an opportunity to participate in a moderated discussion on the place of libraries within academic learning communities, the ways they can contribute to higher education pedagogy, and provide students and faculty a more open, equitable learning environment. Questions posed to panelists and delegates will focus on four interrelated topics: Uncertainty & Learning, Decolonization, Power & Authority, and Identity & Voice.
