The Georgia Tech Library will pilot a new program to integrate and assess the benefit of integrating librarians and artists in the course planning process at STEM-oriented academic institutions. Librarians, artists, faculty, and community members will collaborate to design interdisciplinary projects encouraging tactile learning that are relevant to course objectives with a special emphasis on student engagement, holistic educational experiences, and building effective communication skills. Georgia Tech will share the instructional methods utilized, including lesson plans and educational resources, so that the project can be adopted and adapted for use on other campuses.
