from the Classroom
Students from Kathleen
Perillo's Biology 101 (Environmental Biology) class collaborate
on their group research project during a library instruction session.
The new white boards
in the classroom provide
opportunity and space for students to brainstorm, work solutions,
and share their ideas with others in the class.
Kathleen and the Cannell instruction librarians
have also collaborated in creating a library
instruction session that provides student-centered learning activities
relevant to the course
while also introducing students
to research skills.
