IDEA Learning Community Scholars: The Next Generation of Information Professionals
The IDEA (Innovation, Digital Fluency, Entrepreneurship, and Advocacy) Learning Community Scholars was launched in Fall 2015 with the goal of preparing the next generation of information professionals for successful 21st century careers.
IDEA Learning Community Scholars pursue a degree in residence at the Florida State School of Information Tallahassee campus in Library & Information Studies (MSLIS) or Information Technology (MSIT). The one year immersive and intensive program is specially designed to prepare scholars to meet future needs of information-rich organizations for professionals with either health informatics or web development and administration expertise.
IDEA Learning Community Scholars will meet together in a practicum during the first semester, and will be placed in internships in their final two semesters. These practical experiences will be supplemented through immersive hands-on and community-oriented activities throughout their studies, ensuring that IDEA Learning Community Scholars will graduate with the tools and skill sets they need to integrate innovation, digital fluency, advocacy, and entrepreneurship into successful professional careers in information-rich organizations.
With the generosity of donors, we will be able to sustain and expand the IDEA Learning Community Scholars program for many years to come.
