5 Ways We Can Help JMU Faculty Prepare for Spring Semester

Posted on: January 5, 2023

As you gear up for spring, remember that we are here to support your research and teaching. 

Here are 5 things we’re eager to help you with:

  1. Fine-tuning your Canvas courses: We can help you optimize your courses for Canvas: visit our Consultation & Instruction page and select “Instructional Design and Technology.” For assistance with technical issues related to Canvas, contact our tech support team (now called Learning Innovations and Design Desk).
  1. Making your course readings more accessible: Whether you want to assign free and low-cost online textbook options, or place materials on course reserves, we’ve got you covered.

  2. Helping your students develop strong research skills: Your liaison librarian can help your students learn skills required for research and information seeking. Learn more or email your liaison librarian to start the conversation.
  1. Advancing your research: We can help advance your research by consulting with you on topics such as avoiding predatory publishers, creating data management plans, posting your research on our open-access institutional repository to increase its visibility, and more.

  2. Fitting professional learning into your schedule: This spring, we’re offering five self-paced learning opportunities to support your teaching practices and course design work.
