UAB Libraries and UAB’s Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) have similar goals: to increase learning through enhancing faculty teaching skills. A collaboration between these two entities can lead to student success and faculty teaching improvement. As the amount of information available through the library and online increases, defining and narrowing relevant resources has become more difficult.
The UAB Libraries Workshop Series will provide faculty with library tools and techniques that they can use to improve or streamline their teaching.
For more information about this workshop series, contact Delores Carlito.

There is an interactive activity, so participants are encouraged to bring their electronic devices.
