Fullerton College Library

Library Instruction Summer 2020

In lieu of in-person instruction this summer we are recommending that instructors try out our Canvas workshops. Or, if a course guide is more your style, we have created a collection of quite a few!

The library has three online Canvas workshops with robust content that can provide your students with the information literacy skills that they will 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 less task on your to-do list.


Available Workshop Offerings

Online Workshops

Build your research skills on Canvas

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.

Canvas Assignment Pages

We have 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.

Getting Ready for Fall 2020?

We’ll be expanding our Fall 2020 instructional support to include custom course guides, gamification and synchronous Zoom sessions. If you want to kick-start a collaboration in the summer, write to us.
