Faculty and librarians can collaborate to support students by embedding a librarian in their Canvas Course. Faculty can add the Librarian to the course using the Librarian role. The librarian's presence creates an opportunity for students to interact with them. Here are some ideas of how an embedded librarian can work in your course.
For more information and ideas on how you can utilize an Embedded Librarian in your course, please see the information provided by the librarians at Georgia Highlands College.
Contact the librarian if you have any questions.
Research Guides, also known as LibGuides.
Course-specific research guides provide students with resources from a library instruction session that they can refer to afterward. The guides can also serve as a repository for concepts that cause students difficulty each semester.
Research guides are easily accessible via a URL, or they can be embedded into Canvas. For instructions on embedding a research guide into your course, click on the following link.
The librarian creates interactive tutorials for students. These tutorials demonstrate the steps in the research process based on an assignment. The tutorials contain videos, short answer or multiple-choice questions, and other assessment options. Faculty can assign students the tutorial and request the results of the tutorial from the librarian.
Some examples of tutorials created are
The links below will provide information on enhancing your courses with OER and streaming videos.
For additional information on adding OER or streaming videos to your course, don't hesitate to contact the librarian.
Faculty can schedule a time to meet with the librarian using this link. During this time, the librarian can do one-on-one consultations via Zoom, phone, or face-to-face. We can discuss the creation of practical research assignments, library instruction options, OER, etc.
Students who need additional one-on-one assistance can also schedule consultation time with me. Please pass this information and link along to your students.
