We offer both conceptual and skill or tool-based learning sessions, ranging from a one-time workshop for your working group to scaffolded course support sessions. An example of a conceptual workshop might be “How to choose a good tool for your digital project”. A skill or tool-based workshop might focus on developing a project management plan, or introductory or advanced skills with a particular tool (e.g. WordPress, Omeka, or Tableau). We can also work with you to develop a major or minor assignment sequence using a digital tool or methodology which might include one or more instructional sessions. No experience with digital methodologies is necessary — we always center questions of scholarship and pedagogy!
For summer and fall semester 2020, all teaching activities within the Library, Museums and Press (which includes workshops and course sessions) will be conducted virtually. Virtual instruction allows us to accommodate those who cannot return to campus, while prioritizing the safety of our staff and users.
Typically, we need at least 2-8 weeks notice to consider a teaching collaboration request. How much advanced time we need depends on whether we have teaching materials already prepared, or are creating them for the first time. If you would like to develop an assignment sequence, especially for a major assignment, we strongly recommend that you contact us as soon as you can. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet your request and time frame, but we are always happy to consider it.
When you contact us about a workshop, we will ask you about:
- Your proposed learning goals/outcomes for the workshop, and/or what experience you hope participants will have when they attend
- The specific audience(s), e.g., undergraduate students in your department or program, graduate students within your college, graduate students and faculty
- An approximate number of people who you expect to attend
Once we have discussed the details of your teaching collaboration request, we will provide options to best meet those learning goals. For some topics, that might be a synchronous Zoom session, but for others, it may be a detailed guide or tutorial supplemented by individual consultations.
Please contact us at AskDSP@udel.libanswers.com with the details of your request, and we will reach out to you to discuss learning options.
