Developing Assignments that Use the Library

Friday, January 18th
2:30 – 4:00 pm
Regenstein Library, Room 207

In this program, University of Chicago librarians will highlight ways you can integrate library research instruction into your courses to promote the acquisition of the skills necessary to complete research assignments. We’ll demonstrate ready-to-go online tools that can be integrated into your Chalk site, and discuss the different types of in-class instruction the Library can provide.

At the end of the session, we’ll work together to create some sample assignments designed to help students learn how to use the Library’s collections and online resources. 

Presenters:
Julia Gardner, Head of Reader Services, The Special Collections Research Center
Rebecca Starkey, Librarian for College Instruction and Outreach, Regenstein Library
Debra Werner, Librarian for Science Instruction and Outreach, Crerar Library

Faculty, instructors and graduate students interested in teaching are welcome to attend.   Registration is recommended.

Persons with disabilities who need an accommodation in order to participate in this event should contact Rebecca Starkey at 702-4484 for assistance.
