Request Library Instruction Sessions for your Courses
HKBU librarians provide instruction sessions at the request of faculty. Below are some examples of what we offer. Make your own requests using this online form.
Librarians go beyond PowerPoint! Below is an example of an orientation created using Prezi. Wherever appropriate, librarians will make use of e-learning technologies to enhance their pedagogy.
We provide information literacy instruction sessions tailored to fit the needs of the course. For example, students of a course on Australian history needed to write a coursework essay that made use of primary sources. The librarian prepared a session that addressed two learning outcomes:
Locating printed collections of primary sources in the Library's collections
Making use of the Trove platform produced by the National Library of Australia to discover digitized historical newspapers
Librarians will work closely with you to determine how best they can support your students in achieving the intended learning outcomes of your course.
Librarians also provide open workshops to the University community that we brand as "Learning Events". These smaller sessions are designed to be as interactive as possible.
