Here are 3 ways you can utilize LibraryLEARN in your course:
1. Before Library instruction
Do your librarians have limited time with students to teach them research and information literacy skills?
2. Scaffold throughout your Course
Are you concerned about having enough time to cover your course’s content and incorporate research instruction into your syllabus?
3. As a Developmental Tool
Do some of your students need a refresher or additional help with how to do research (transfer students, non-traditional students, at risk students)?
