Elena Rodriguez is the designated reviewer for LIBR 105 syllabi. Prior to instructing, please email your syllabus to Elena for review.
All LIBR 105 Syllabi need to contain the course goals and student learning outcomes stated above. The current signature assignment for LIBR 105 assessment is the annotated bibliography. The following links from Academic Affairs will assist you in crafting your syllabus.
Faculty must state on their syllabi how they will verify attendance, regardless if the student has entered the OAKS course. This is pertinent to us since we are asynchronous online, and students may enter our course without completing or reviewing anything.
If a student has “verified” their attendance but is failing to complete work in the course, faculty should communicate/ discuss options with the student which may include withdrawing from the course with a W by the deadline set on the Academic Calendar.
As of Fall 2020, WA is no longer a grade option, as voted on by Faculty Senate. Adjustments to existing attendance statements should be made accordingly.
Reminder for AY 2020-2021: All faculty have been asked to have a clear and flexible attendance policy and to "forgo any attendance policy that either imposes penalties for a fixed number of days missed or makes attendance a substantial part of the final grade" (Fran Welch Memo, August 2020).
By the end of the course you will be able to
Develop compelling research questions
Identify contextually appropriate tools and resources to answer research questions
Employ effective and efficient search strategies to find a range of appropriate information sources
Critically evaluate information according to discipline specific parameters of authority
Use information ethically, avoiding plagiarism and respecting the intellectual property of others
Contribute to ongoing scholarly conversation by producing new information content and building on previous scholarly efforts
