Developing Assignments that Use the Library: workshop

When: Wednesday, May 22, 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Where: Gates-Blake 133, CTL Conference Room
5845 S. Ellis Ave, Chicago, IL
Description: This course is designed for faculty, instructors, and graduate students interested in teaching.

Have you found that your students aren’t using the academic sources you expect for their assignments? Do your students seem to lack basic library research skills? 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.
