This presentation will look at unique credit-bearing courses offered by Western Libraries to promote and support student agency and engagement at Western Libraries. Based out of the Teaching and Learning Division within the Libraries, two credit-bearing practica are offered to students at Western Washington University. The practica are focused on a range of academic literacies: research, reading, writing, speaking, and listening. The Research-Writing Practicum and Speaking-Listening Practicum are based on a peer-to-peer model using a personalized learning plan for each student and focused on individual needs and goals. Students are encouraged to drive the direction of their learning plans, which has led to a strong sense of community and agency over their learning.
