On May 19 and 20 we held a library seminar for faculty and instructors in IT. Fourteen faculty and staff members attended a day and a half event that covered a wide variety of library tools and resources that could be incorporated into teaching, learning and research.
If you weren't able to attend but thought the information might be useful, we've created a website to go along with the event that will allow you to see many of the skills and tools we discussed. The website links to PowerPoint presentations, lecture recordings, online learning objects and handouts--including a link to the slides presented by IT Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs, Paul Strykowski.
If you're interested in learning more please visit the site at http://sciweb.lib.umn.edu/facultyseminar2010/.
If any of the topics covered strike a chord or if you'd like to have a discussion of ways to incorporate information seeking skills into your assignments, please feel free to get in touch with me.
