The 2020+ Project: Using WordPress to Organize, Evaluate, & Discuss the College of the Future
The Provost of Providence College asked the Library+Commons to compile scholarly materials on the future of higher education in order for the Academic Affairs Committee to prepare for the college of 2020. The committee needed an easily accessible, annotated “bibliography” that would allow for commenting, etc. The Research & Education librarians focused on topics such as teaching, learning, accountability, student and faculty characteristics. The research end was challenging and the librarians continue to explore avenues to find appropriate resources online. They experimented with many platforms before choosing WordPress as the best open-source vehicle to organize and present the multi-modal scholarship.
