Planning and Assessing
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 the 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.
