High School to College Transition Special Interest Group

Date:Thursday, February 28, 2019*
Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: Southeastern
Convener: Lara Patel, SUNY Orange
*Snow date Thursday, March 7, 2019

The article for discussion at this meeting will be "Shhh! Noise in the library: Does the Information Commons Model Benefit High School and College Students?" The High School to College Transition group is focused on letting high school and college librarians share their experiences with each other. The goal of this group is to help high school librarians prepare students for college, and for academic librarians to gain a better idea of where students are coming from and how they can help.

Through conversation, this SIG will work to ease students’ transition between high school and college. The agenda will be set by the group. Topics of discussion could include college readiness, the first-year college experience, and enhancing critical thinking, and working with college programs in the high school, preparing for the second half of the school year, and follow-up from our previous meetings and workshops. Staff at any Southeastern member institution who work directly with students are welcome. 

Couldn't join us last time and want to catch up? Notes from the previous meeting are available on the SIG LibGuide here.
