Led by Tori Longfield (Digital Liberal Arts Librarian)

Building an Inclusive and Student-Centered Syllabus: Best Practices for Helping All Students Thrive

Thursday, March 5, 2020 (11 a.m. to 12 p.m.)
Van Wylen Library, Granberg Room

A syllabus is an important guide for supporting and directing the student learning experience. Syllabi also provide a context for the content skills that are covered in a course. Associate Provost Gerald Griffin will lead a discussion about how syllabi help to create an inclusive classroom as well as serve as roadmaps in courses that have a mixed approach in instructional methodology and delivery. Essential components of syllabi as well as helpful additions will be covered.

All Things E-books

Providing over 700,000 e-books through a multitude of platforms, the library’s e-book landscape appears anything but straightforward. Jen Holman (Electronic Resources Librarian) and Jeremy Barney (Metadata and Digital Collections Librarian) will offer tips and best practices for making the most of library e-books including understanding access models/formats, using them for textbooks/course readings, and saving chapters in Moodle.
