Services For Faculty: Teaching, Learning and Research Skills


The Learning Resource Centre collaborates with

Faculty to develop life-long learning skills throughout the Michener community.

Teaching, Learning, Researching Consultations (TLrC):

"Book the Librarian" to set up a TLrC appointment to discuss all your information, teaching and learning support needs. The LRC can help you discover learning resources to share with your students, develop a hypothesis/research project for your Master's, conduct a systematic review, develop a search strategy, scan literature and more. Students can "Book the Librarian" too for research and referencing support. 

Learning Resource Guides

The LRC has developed tailored Program Resource Guides for programs that give access to the best print and electronic resources and learning tools, such as an assignment calculator to plan projects working back from assignment due date, a research cycle tutorial to help students map out the research and submit quality papers, and a guide to writing critical reviews. These guides are constantly being updated with the newest and most relevant information sources.

The Resource Guides are available on the LRC website.

Information Fluency Instruction

The Librarian can help meet your teaching goals and students' learning needs by:

  • Reviewing assignments and their LRC resource requirements
  • Teaching your students the information skills they will need for your course. This can take the form of:
    • In-Class presentations customized to your assignments
    • Drop-In sessions outside of class
    • Online research help guides
    • Short instructional videos

Off-Site Access to Online Information Resources-Virtually

The LRC's wealth of online information resources is available 24/7 via off-site access to the LRC website. Thousands of online journals, e-books, databases and tools are licensed and online for the use of the Michener community, via your MIchener network user name and password.

Learning Spaces

The LRC has various spaces available for Faculty to book:

The Computer Lab (Studio) has 34 computers with additional seating to support learning, teaching and research. It can be booked as an alternative site for exams, as a space for digital and information fluency learning, or as the best space for students to view images in teams.

The AV Viewing Room (Rm.213) offers 7 computers for a smaller setting.

The ThinkPad (Rm.212) is a smaller conference room, convenient for Faculty interviews or small team work sessions.


Citation Management Tool and Referencing Styles

Zotero is a bibliographic reference management tool that helps users keep track of the sources they use for research and formats their references in the appropriate style. It is available at Students and staff can also find information on the Vancouver and APA referencing styles on the LRC website. Accounts are free for faculty and students, and the LRC can answer questions or deliver a Zotero workshop for your students.

Keeping Current

To help you stay up to date, the LRC can access and distribute journals to faculty and staff. For electronic journals, Table of Contents services can be set up, with updates sent directly to your inbox.
