Instruction sessions are tailored to your courses and provide students with transferable skills in information literacy and library research.
Librarians at the Kaufman Library teach more than 300 course-integrated library instruction sessions per year. They are available to instruct your students on all aspects of the research process including: determining a topic and research question, locating relevant and reliable information, evaluating information, and using information ethically.
Lessons are tailored to meet the needs of each class and assignment. Classes typically take the entire class period (50-75 minutes) and are scheduled in one of the library instruction rooms.
Some things to consider:
1. Plan on giving us two weeks notice when requesting classes
2. Plan to attend the library session with your students
3. Plan the library session to coincide with your relevant assignment(s)
4. Provide your students with the assignment and discuss it with them before the library session
5. Share the assignment and sample topics with your librarian before the library session
6. We are happy to work with you to design or redesign information literacy and research activities, assignments, and assessments!
