What We Do

The Instructional Services Department of the University Libraries takes pride in offering students a collaborative classroom environment that maximizes hands-on learning.

Combining innovative, active learning techniques with a "thoughtfully experimental" approach to curriculum design, faculty in Instructional Services teach one-shot sessions and credit-bearing courses to familiarize students with library research techniques and tools.

Campus Partnerships and Area Outreach

Instructional Services provides student-centered learning opportunities for a variety of groups and programs, including:

  • Audiology and Speech-Language Sciences (ASLS)
  • Center for Human Enrichment
  • Center for International Education
  • Criminology and Criminal Justice (CRJ)
  • English 122 & 123
  • Honors Program
  • Student-Athlete Academic Success Office
  • University 101
  • Local and regional high schools

Faculty in Instructional Services are enthusiastic about talking with campus faculty and staff about meeting specific group and program needs.

Our Approach

Instructional Services faculty create concept-specific activities, online learning objects, and instructional videos to address a variety of learning styles. Activities are mapped to defined Student Learning Outcomes, assessed, and measured against pre-determined benchmarks for continuous improvement.
