8 Ways We Can Help Faculty Prepare for Spring

Posted on: January 11, 2022

Dear JMU faculty colleagues, As you prepare for Spring semester, please remember that we in the Libraries are dedicated to helping you:

1. Get Canvas support

Contact the Libraries’ Learning Technology Services group at 540-568-5312 or letsupport@jmu.edu for help with Canvas-related technical tasks.

2. Use classroom technology

Contact the Libraries’ Classroom Technology Services team at 540-568-6799 or tchelp@jmu.edu for help with projectors, wireless microphones, and other classroom tech.

3. Connect with colleagues and experts

Try our online office hours for Spring semester prep.

4. Teach with Zoom and other tools

Find expert advice on online or hybrid teaching, including teaching with Zoom at JMU.

5. Make instructional design decisions

Request a one-on-one consultation on any instructional design or educational technology topic.

6. Finalize your course readings and media

As you decide what readings, videos, and other media to assign for your courses this semester, consider the many online options that are accessible to your students through JMU Libraries:

For physical materials that are in high demand, you can place a shorter check-out time through Course Reserves. Just log in here with your JMU eID and submit your course reserves information. You may also email requests to reserves@jmu.edu.

7. Build your students’ research skills

Invite us to your class to help your students build skills in research, evaluating sources, data management, information literacy, and more.

8. Get the answers you need

You can Ask the Library about anything we provide! When you have an in-depth research question, you can also contact your department’s liaison librarian. We want to help!

And so much more!
