Research Skills Toolbox

February 11, 2014
11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Faculty Commons, 3rd Floor, Glickman Family Library, USM Portland Campus

The Research Skills Toolbox was conceived as a way to provide library instruction when there is a perceived need but devoting class time to it is just not practical; it is designed to be flexible in meeting the needs of faculty and students. At this session, we’ll introduce you to our Research Skills Toolbox, explain how we envision it being used, and listen to your input on how we can improve it.  If you are interested in “flipping” your instructional model to provide lectures and quizzes outside of classroom time or if you are faced with students with widely differing levels of information literacy, we hope that the toolbox will work for you.

Tuesday, February 11th
11 am- 1 pm
3rd Floor Faculty Commons Space
Glickman Family Library, USM Portland Campus
