In class sessions are a popular and useful means of information literacy instruction. Our instruction sessions are specifically tailored to your assignment(s) and the learning objectives for your course. Library professionals will work with you to design a class period where students will be engaged with the content while learning to become effective researchers.
Many of our sessions include active learning and can also incorporate pre-session work to allow for more time to be spent on a practical application of the concepts. We can develop tailored learning objectives for the session and include appropriate assessments.
Library professionals are available to work with your students in online environments as well as in-person. We can host live workshops and class sessions or we can create pre-recorded content. Just let us know what works best for you and for your students and we can plan an experience that will enable them to become engaged with the material and get the most out of the session.
Some examples of past sessions we have hosted sessions include:
Experts can meet with individual researchers or groups of researchers to provide research and software support.

Or, we can simply be added to the course as a resource for students to go to for research help.
The libraries have developed a number of modules covering topics on:
Some of these modules are available on the Canvas Commons (just search "library") and can be embedded as modules directly into your Canvas course. Otherwise, you are free to share the links above with your students as you see fit.
