Presentation Description

Faculty members often believe they have all the answers and have cornered the research market in their respective disciplines. By adopting, a “this is what I would recommend for your students” approach, the academic resources unit at a small, private University increased interest in continuing education among portions of the faculty. By facilitating more continuing education opportunities, collaboration re-animated professors’ assignments, and subsequently, re-animated student research methods and writing skill sets. Come hear how Librarian and Writing Center partnerships in faculty presentations are beginning to foster interest among faculty in enhancing their assignments. This collaboration has also led to a stronger sense of coordination between faculty, their assignments, and academic resources.
