Remote Library Instruction for Summer & Fall 2020

Remote Library Instruction

Faculty interested in Library information literacy instruction for their classes should email the librarians at ref@lavc.libanswers.com to request an online alternative. We can create a custom research guide for your class, or perhaps meet with your students via Zoom. Let's work together to determine the best solution for your course. 

Or, perhaps the solution already exists?

On menu to the left, you'll find links to asynchronous content to build up your students' research skills. Feel free to copy and paste any of the links to share these with your students. 

Online Library Workshop for English 101

The Online Library Workshop is interactive, asynchronous, and available for all sections of English 101! This workshop was designed to support learning outcomes for English 101 students and provide additional support under AB-705.

The Workshop is a stand-alone Canvas shell that your students can easily self-enroll in. It is no longer embedded in English 101 Canvas shells, or connected to your gradebook. When your students complete the Workshop, the Library will reach out to you and let you know.

 If you'd like to use the Online Library Workshop in your English 101 section, here's how:

  • Consider how this will fit within your overall English 101 curriculum:
    • What incentive will you provide for students to complete the Workshop? Will it count for a grade?
    • What time of semester would make the most sense to offer the Workshop? 
    • Will you assign it all at once, or in pieces? (We estimate that the entire Workshop should take students 2 hours to complete. Please see attached content outline for a reminder of how the Workshop is organized.)
  • Direct your students to the Online Library Workshop, using this link: https://lib.lavc.edu/olw
    (Note: Students can also navigate from the top of the Library homepage, under "Get Research Help")
  • Tell your students that, in order to get credit for completing the Workshop, they must work through the units, complete the two quizzes, and submit a survey at the very end. (The quizzes test their Workshop knowledge, and the end-survey tells us who their professor is.)

English 101 instructors with questions about this Workshop can email us at ref@lavc.libanswers.com.
