Learn about the library's role in information literacy instruction at Central Penn.

Finding books by browsing our shelves

It is easy to browse for materials to help you be a better teacher using the library's online catalog. Just use the keyword search inserting "teaching" . The online catalog will provide you with the titles of both the books that are  physically on our shelves, as well as, the many ebooks we have available 24/7.   Sometimes it is nice to explore what the library has by looking at our shelves. Books about education are found in 370s section since we use the Dewey Decimal System. In this guide we feature just a few  of our titles. The categories created here are Effective Teaching; Online/ Blended Learning; Plagiarism and Cheating; and Assessment of Student Learning.  Hover over the title of the featured title and you will be linked to our catalog for more information.

Online resources

There are so many resources on the Internet to help you. In a basic search for " College Teaching Resources" , there was a nice list of teaching and learning resources that other colleges and universities had complied for their faculty. Some of the entries went into great detail about everything from designing a syllabus to legal considerations. I also discovered college teaching blogs that posted advice from practicing educators.
