Known as the "gaming librarian" Michelle Goodridge has been working with games in libraries for almost 7 years. Michelle holds a Master of Arts in History (2011) and a Master of Library and Information Science (2014) – both from The University of Western Ontario – and has over a decade of experience working in academic libraries. Michelle focuses a large amount of her time and energy on outreach and teaching both on-campus and off and seeks to create unique and non-traditional partnerships such as her work with bringing together academic and public libraries. Michelle’s other (library) interests include active-learning, SoTL, objective assessment, non-traditional library collections, game-based teaching and learning, social media, archival and special collections, user experience, and using technology in information literacy instruction.
