For Faculty: Classes & Workshops
Course Integrated Seminars
Faculty are invited to request a library session for upper division and graduate courses. Scheduling a session is an excellent way to help prepare students for assignments requiring research. Course integrated library seminars instruct students in the effective use of both electronic and print resources in relevant disciplines.
Requests need to be made in advance by contacting your Library subject liaison or telephoning the Reference office at 338-2187.
Library/CTFD co-sponsored workshops address the multiple needs of faculty who want to both update their awareness and understanding of the latest information and research tools in their field and also guide student research for maximal utility and educational benefit. These workshops last 1-2 hours and are held in Library room 426A, our electronic classroom.
If you desire further information or want a customized workshop for your department or unit, contact Athena Nazario and Kendra Van Cleave, Library Education Co-Coordinators.
CTFD (The Center for Teaching and Faculty Development) also offers workshops such as: Teaching Large Classes Successfully, Assessment Rubrics, and Designing Writing Assignments that Work.
Academic Technology Workshops
Also housed in the Library, the department of Academic Technology offers workshops on Learning Management Systems (LMS) such as iLearn and on creating and enhancing instructional websites.
