Library+ TeacherEducation support for teachers @UM
Resources for your courses
Find and offer as many resources as you want and develop your students into domain experts and well-trained information seekers.
Facilities for education
Are you teaching or planning exams in the University Library in the upcoming period? In that case, we offer facilities and services for your education.
Integrating information literacy into your course
The library organises workshops, has made some online tutorials and instructional videos. Tutorials, video’s and additional information can be found on the Skills & Support page.
Implementing tools for offline and online education
What do you want your students to achieve in your course? What teaching and learning activities suit these intended learning outcomes? And how to facilitate these given aspects as where are your students, how to monitor and assess them?
In addition to hosting the digital learning environment (EleUM), the Library Blended PBL Support team supports teachers in implementing tools for teaching and learning. We can advise on your (online) education, whether it’s about entire course design, implementing digital tools, or adapting and offering assignments for your students to perform.
Students enter course-related content and tools in the digital learning environment via the Student Portal. Teaching and support staff work in the back-end or learning management system (currently Blackboard). On the EleUM Support blog you find all information on Blackboard.
As from 1 August 2020 we will transition to Canvas. Visit the Going Canvas Portal for everything you want to find out about this LMS and how to start working with it.
