Summer Support for JMU Faculty and Instructors

Posted on: May 17, 2022

Congratulations—grades are in, and you’ve made it to the end of the academic year! As you take a breath, recover, and reflect, remember that we are here to support your research and teaching. 

Here are 6 things we can help you with:

  1. Fine-tuning your Canvas courses: Our instructional designers can help you optimize your courses for Canvas. For assistance with technical issues related to Canvas, contact our tech support team. 
  2. 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.  
  3. 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. 
  4. Advancing your research: We can help advance your research this summer 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. 
  5. Fitting professional learning into your schedule: This summer, we’re offering four self-paced learning opportunities to support your teaching practices and course design work. 
  6. Finding the help you need: Request a consultation on educational technology topics, media production for your teaching, and much more.
