The Learning Resource Centre supports faculty by making
the best materials and learning objects available across Michener.
The LRC's collections of electronic and physical resources are targeted to Michener's specific needs. As originally envisioned by Dr. Diana M. Schatz, founder pf the Michener Institute, our policy is to ensure that the collections are current, flexible and relevant in terms of scope and quality.
The LRC selects, orders, licenses, and provides access to resources in all formats. Faculty is encouraged to suggest new titles for purchase, which we can usually acquire promptly. We can also connect you with the publishers to acquire desk copies of texts. The LRC can also borrow from other libraries in the area, including University Health Network and the University of Toronto (UofT).
The LRC will consult with faculty on resources in varied formats to support curriculum development, embedding learning objects into BlackBoard and enabling access across Michener.
The Sound Studio provides a video/audio recording environment for faculty:
Dry Lab Resources are available in the LRC to give students hands-on, life-like learning experiences. Below are a few examples of what resources are available to students in the Dry Lab:
LRC can review curriculum materials to ensure compliance with Canadian copyright provisions and MIchener licensing agreements and policies.
The LRC acts as the textbook liaison with the UofT Bookstore. Document your required and recommended textbooks in the Michener Textbook Bank to have textbooks available at the bookstore for student purchase.
