In September, 2013 the Learner-Centredness Project (LCP) began as collaboration between the University of Guelph Library and Open Learning and Educational Support in order to explore the community’s understanding of ‘learner-centredness.’ Since then the goal of the project has been to investigate learner-centredness with the University of Guelph community, to raise awareness about learner-centredness and to engage in conversations about learning and learner-centredness. With low-tech methods – chalk, markers, collage and conversation – the LCP asked the community questions like: “what does learning look like?” “what does learner-centred mean to you?” “what is your vision of the ideal university” and “what is learning”?

This poster will share with the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education community the philosophy and outcomes behind the LCP, the strategies for engagement and community building we employed, and the opportunities for collaboration, fun, delight, interactivity and heart that the project inspired.

Participants at the poster presentation will be invited to take part in some of the same LCP initatives we shared at the University of Guelph. In taking part in these interactive, low-tech, creative and positive activities, participants will not only gain awareness of the principles of the LCP, but will also begin to explore individually and as a collective conference community what learner-centred means.
