At DePauw University librarians and instructional technologists, including student interns working in Student Technology Support, will be collaboratively supporting First-year Seminars in the form of resources teams. A student tutor from the Speaking and Listening Center and a peer mentor round out these teams, which provide instructors and first-year students specific contacts to assist with library research, class discussion, technology projects, etc. While an opportunity for the Library and IT to collaborate, the resource teams will also enable these areas to provide crucial support at the very initial stages of a student’s college career by helping faculty attain their teaching goals.
Following an introduction of previous collaborative library-IT projects at DePauw, the presentation will give an overview of the planning for the resource teams launching this fall, including the various opportunities for the two areas to work side-by-side. These opportunities include leveraging new technologies on campus. The latter half of this session will enable participants to discuss in small groups, while noting the discussion in Google Docs, similar efforts they have had on their campuses, especially courses with multiple sections allowing for the biggest payback, and subsequent words of wisdom.
