Instruction in how to teach information searching skills
The Library also holds instruction in how you as a teacher can teach information searching skills to your students. We go through the steps in teaching the students to search, evaluate and reference scholarly publications and other resources.
There are two Active Learning Classrooms (ALC) at the Biomedical Library. ALC are rooms designed and equipped to promote more interactive and flexible learning. Contact the Biomedical Library if you want to learn more about ALC or teach a class in the classrooms.
