English 1201 Faculty: Schedule your Library Session

SCHEDULE YOUR LIBRARY INSTRUCTION SESSION

All Library Instruction sessions for English 1201 are scheduled through Elizabeth Redwine. Please e-mail her with your preferred day. Note that all instruction is conducted in one of several locations in the Walsh Library.

DO I HAVE TO ACCOMPANY MY STUDENTS?

We do require that instructors attend the class with students. Your attendance helps the librarian be more like a visiting artist and less like a substitute teacher, makes sure your students will attend, and reinforces the idea that knowing how to use libraries is important. 

I'M BUSY. HOW FAR AHEAD DO I HAVE TO PLAN?

We understand that you are busy, and schedules can't always be pinned down in advance. However, the earlier you can schedule your library instruction session, the better! We cannot accommodate requests made less than two weeks before the desired date.

Think about the timing of the session as your students will see it. Is their assignment still an abstract thing, off in the distance, or is it near enough that they've already picked their topic and started looking for sources? We get lots of requests for the first few weeks of classes, but these sessions are almost never as effective as they could be, since students don't see a direct need for what we are teaching.
