Description: 

Library and Student Services partners will share research results from 3 semesters worth of student surveys addressing the appeal of attending campus Long Night Against Procrastination events. Evidence of student motivations and learning is critical for the continuation of such unorthodox events, and points to a demand for supportive, collaborative work environments outside of regular service hours - even at 2am in bunny slippers.
Learning objectives:

  • Consider the value of temporary learning communities
  • Reflect how academic services can be offered in engaging, informal environments
  • Engage in discussion about similar experiences
Conference Year:
