Librarians can serve as co-instructors within Blackboard courses and provide valuable virtual assistance from making themselves available for reference questions to providing links and tips for course-related research, etc.
You can add a librarian as a co-instructor by setting up the librarian as a course user and then upgrading the privileges of the user:
If your class has a research assignment, we can create a research guide tailored to that assignment. Guides include suggested resources and instructions. See, for example, Homework Assignment Guide for Chemical & Environmental Graduate Seminar
. Contact your subject librarian to request a guide.
If you want your students to learn particular research skills, we can create an assignment for you. We can also assess the research skills of your students through pre- and post-tests delivered via Blackboard. Please contact your subject librarian.
You can find a variety of information literacy/competency-related assignment and assessment examples and tips in the Introducing Students to Library Research Guide.
