Canvas Workshops

Avoiding Plagiarism Workshop - goes beyond the ethics of using sources effectively and provides students with the tools to avoid inadvertent plagiarism. 

Evaluating Sources Workshop -  based on the CRAAP Test developed by the Meriam Library at Cal State Chico. It starts with defining the necessity of having an information need before starting research and ties each of the evaluation elements to how they are defined by that information need.

Research Basics Workshop -  provides a blueprint for the research process from identifying the topic, understanding the scope, finding background information before defined searching, basic and advanced search strategies (Boolean operators, phrase searching, truncation, date limiters, source type limiters), and using OneSearch.

Online Workshops

Build your research skills on Canvas

Advantages for Instructors

  • The library’s three online Canvas workshops are filled with robust content that can provide your students with the information literacy skills they need to complete their research assignments. Each of these workshops can be completed in around 1 hour. They are self-enrolled, and students receive a certificate of completion when they pass with a score of 80% or higher. Better yet, we score the workshops, so that’s one task off your to-do list.
  • We created Canvas assignment pages for each workshop that we can share with you. You can simply import the page into your Canvas course. Students receive certificates of completion they can upload to the assignment in your Canvas course. If you would like us to share the pages with you, email Online Learning Librarian Lugene Rosen at lrosen@fullcoll.edu.

Advantages for Instructors

  • Chances are that a guide already exists for your class! We created and tested numerous library guides throughout the years. Browse all guides or check out some of our most popular resources.
  • Want something different? Librarians are available to work with you on a guide that fits your needs. (We can even give you access to edit and add your own resources). Request a custom guide
