Abstract
Following on our presentation in Vancouver, we briefly present the results of our first integration of tablet-based learning and deep reading into the humanities classroom. Encouraged and enlightened by the results of this project, we plan to introduce a library-based, faculty development program to accelerate the systematic integration of ubiquitous technologies into the university culture. Library faculty are particularly poised to present this material. They are current with the technologies, pedagogically aware, experienced in integrating ubiquitous technologies into the classroom through embedded information literacy instruction, and are currently facilitating the shift from traditional print to tablet-based electronic books in our library. Practical techniques for new discussion formats, distance learning, interactive and collaborative learning, new classroom presentation styles, issues with classroom management, and novel research approaches will be presented in both a library led summer institute for faculty and ongoing librarian - faculty partnerships for continued classroom and research success. We believe this approach will initiate and sustain the cultural shift needed for the systematic integration of tablets and other technologies into our university teaching and research environment.
