For a library research session, the faculty member sends the librarian a Zoom link for the class in advance. Before the class starts, the faculty member would enable screen sharing using the "multiple participants" choice mentioned in the first 18 seconds of this video.
Please contact Joyce in advance for a link to a customized online worksheet for your class.
The customized online worksheet is used only for asynchronous classes. "Live" classes respond in chat or by voice.
Students can watch the tutorial videos on their own, and complete the worksheet by a due date.
Tell the librarian the due date. They will share the students' worksheet answers with you.
At any point, students can consult a librarian for assistance with the assignment.
At Least a Week Before the Class Session
For scheduled synchronous sessions, tell the librarian:
approximately how many students are in the class
if they are mixed majors or a particular major
if you are using an assignment.
If no assignment: the librarian will use a demonstration topic that students can use for hands-on time. An assignment is not required for the library session.
if an assignment: students can search for their topics during the session.
For asynchronous sessions:
The librarian will create and send to you an online document for your class to use.
HRD Research Assignment
The Student Skills Research Assignment and Presentation is often used as an end-of-semester final presentation.
Decide if you'll have a final assignment, or if the library segment will be a stand-alone session.
An assignment is not necessary for the library research session.
See the assignment in the Blackboard Freshman Seminar Repository (Content > Freshman Seminar Shared Content > Assignments> Student Support Services).
The Blackboard assignment includes suggested topics. Decide if you'll assign topics, or have students choose them.
Scheduling Non-HRD Classes
More than two-thirds of all classes visiting the library each year are subject-oriented, not HRD classes. To schedule a research session for other courses, see:
