Libraries are in a primary position to help instructors evolve their curriculum to include more innovative approaches to teaching and student learning. The student media project is one such approach that is increasingly leveraged not only to help facilitate the acquisition of subject knowledge and digital media technical skill sets, but also critical thinking skills. This is often achieved through a required public engagement component (e.g., creating a documentary style digital story that highlights local issues or organizations, interviewing community members on camera, etc.). As part of an ongoing research project to explore the benefits and limitations of over 350 different course integrated student media assignments at the University of Minnesota, this session will showcase a number of examples that illustrate these projects’ potential. This session will provide an overview on the range of library based information and media related services deployed for each project with suggestions on how participants might consider adapting their own individual and organizational contexts to provide greater support for these rich learning experiences.
