Resources to Support Teaching

Embed Research Projects in your Course

  • Course Support Requests:  Partner with a librarian to design research assignments, teach your students to find, evaluate and ethically use information, and assess student research projects.  Consult with us, schedule an instruction session, embed us in Canvas or get a tailored research guide for your course.
  • Information Literacy Toolkit: find sample assignments and approaches to teaching research that you can download and customize for your course.  Find examples of how other faculty at UT have approached teaching these skills.
  • Plagiarism resources:  Resources for preventing plagiarism in your classroom.

Digital Projects and Making

  • PCL Data Lab:  The Data Lab provides hardware and software for analysis and management of data and advanced research projects.  Contact us to integrate the data lab into your course or to book the Data Lab as a teaching space.
  • Request a PCL Learning Lab:  PCL Learning Labs are technologically rich, flexible teaching spaces that seat 32 to 84 students.  Faculty may request a Learning Lab for their course up to 2x per semester.  Requests will be considered if the Learning Labs technology will be used to facilitate collaboration, not simply presentation; or for instructors needing space to help students work with the print collections in PCL.  Librarians are available to help you integrate the technology into your course.
  • Integrate digital projects into your course:  Contact librarians about integrating digital projects into your course.  Ideas include making videos, podcasts and exhibits as alternatives to traditional research papers.
