The Library welcomes collaboration with Faculty staff of the University to offer tailor-made library workshops specifically for your courses and held in your classes. Our Library staff will work closely with you on designing the library workshops and meet with the learning outcomes of your courses.
To complement your teaching and enhance the research skills of students, including searching of academic resources, effective searching techniques, complying with academic integrity, research topic selection and development, etc., the Library will offer workshops on all these skills and techniques that can be embedded in your course.
Roles of Faculty
To facilitate the Library staff to design the tailor-made Library workshops, the Faculty staff should:
- identify the needs of the students;
- contact the Library that you are interested to be a partner of Library workshops;
- suggest topics for the Library to cover in the workshops; and
- inform the students about the arrangement of the Library workshops
The Library will take care of the rest!
