Micro-Courses are a pedagogical approach for skill-based learning delivered via small learning units. The Libraries seek to advance its micro-course initiative by expanding its offerings to learners.
The development of content is done in collaboration with librarian subject matter experts and campus partners. Course development is selected on skills that are interdisciplinary, align with library strategic priorities, and have high demand. Deep partnerships with groups such as the Graduate School, Writing Center, and academic departments have aided in topic selection and wide adoption by our graduate students.
This initiative was originally piloted in 2017 and then moved into being a full initiative as part of the E-Learning plan for 2019-2021.
