RESOURCES & ANNOUNCEMENTS


 

Guide: Add Readings to myCourses

 

The Library can help you make course readings available to your students at no cost with myCourses. It’s easy to link to the library’s millions of articles and ebooks, or to scan and upload book chapters and articles directly to myCourses.


 

Mid-course Evaluations

 

Want to receive valuable feedback from your students during the term while it’s still possible to make adjustments to your teaching?

Instructors may add up to three questions to their course evaluation questionnaire. This is an opportunity for you to get feedback specific to your course context or your teaching, such as the use of new teaching strategies.
