Online Guide & Workshops
The LARK OER Guide is for students and teachers.
This guide is intended as a self-directed resource to help you through your studies, particularly if you are studying at undergraduate or postgraduate level. Are you a first year student, just starting to be asked to use Library resources independently by your instructor (i.e. outside your reading list), or are you returning to third-level education after some time away? You might get started with the tabs on Sources, on Evaluating Information and on Academic Integrity. Are you starting a major research assignment i.e. final year project or Master's project? Not a bad idea to check it out all the way through, starting with section one, which covers the very important Research Question.
Are you a member of the NUI Galway community in a teaching role? You are encouraged to embed any of the material here in your reading list or in Blackboard. Instructors are welcome to use our Blackboard compatible bank of quiz questions to embed in their modules, either as assessed or non-assessed material. Upload the folder available at the link above for a Pool of questions based on the content of this Guide.
Not sure how, or looking for further ideas on how to embed these resources in your teaching? Get in touch, email@example.com.
