ATUS, CIIA, OCE, and Western Libraries are offering frequent learning opportunities during Spring 2020. See schedule to the right. These are opportunities to interact with support staff, post your questions, and share or gather resources and strategies.
Western Libraries offers a range of resources and services to support your teaching success. Have a question that is not listed below? Contact your Subject Team and we will help you find an answer to your question.
· Do you normally use print materials (e.g. books, journals) or other media (e.g. films) within your classes? We can gain access to online materials by purchasing online versions of books, licensing films, or providing access to book chapters. Contact your Subject Team and someone will reach out to assist as soon as possible.
· Teaching synchronously (real-time) and interested in a workshop for your students? We can host a range of workshops via Zoom for you and your students. Our workshops range from enhancing one’s research and writing skills (e.g. Finding & Using Sources, Revising & Editing) to being a successful online learner (e.g. time management, test-taking, goal-setting).
· Teaching asynchronously and looking for ways to support and advance your research and writing assignments? The Hacherl Research & Writing Studio provides a number of videos and other tutorialsavailable online. We will continue to build on these resources during the next few weeks. Interested in a resource that is not currently available? Contact your Subject Team and we will work to locate or create a potential resource that would meet the needs of your class.
· Looking for additional resources to help your students prepare for their research and writing or their math or science courses online? Share the Keep Learning page which highlights resources for students available from various areas including Western Libraries.
