Dr. Padraig Lawlor's Request:
Thanks for this information! I have assigned final research papers for both classes below and I think library instruction for both would be very beneficial for the students. Would you be available for the following dates/times:
HTY340 British History coverage:
This course covers the history of Britain from Roman times (43AD–410) to the conclusion of the Victorian Era (1837–1901). During the semester, we will discuss important political, social, religious and cultural developments that helped to shape the course of British history. Topics include: Anglo-Saxon England, The Wars of the Roses, Tudor England, The English Civil Wars and Revolution, The Restoration of the Stuart Monarchy, The British Industrial Revolution, and The Rise and Decline of British Empire.
LIBRARY INSTRUCTION LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
1. Students will clarify their research questions. ACRL Framework:
Research is iterative and depends upon asking increasingly complex or new questions whose answers in turn develop additional questions or lines of inquiry in any field.
2. Students will develop appropriate research strategies and techniques for searching databases. ACRL Framework:
Searching for information is often nonlinear and iterative, requiring the evaluation of a range of information sources and the mental flexibility to pursue alternate avenues as new understanding develops.
