How I can help your students

I work with many different classes in many different ways. Here are some examples, and the ideal lead time I need to prep (and to avoid calendaring conflicts!):

 

  • A customized Course Guide 
    • 2 weeks lead time
    • You can also link to existing guides like HIST 298 (also useful for compsing seniors), the general A&I guide, or the History Guide.
  • ​A short meet & greet with me, and intro to/refresher on library research (5-20 minutes)
    • 1 week lead time
    • Useful for consultation-intensive classes
  • A deeper dive into information literacy, or a guided working session (60-90 minutes)
    • 2-4 weeks lead time
    • A deeper dive into information literacy [such as: tips & tricks of specific databases; scavenger hunt for library sources; a meta look at library resources and discussion around what gets archived and why, etc]
  • Small group consultations (in which I meet with 1-4 students at once)
    • Self-scheduled with the student, but it's helpful for me to have warning if you're directing the whole class to make appointments with me.
    • It's often helpful for me to come in for a few minutes to class to introduce myself to the students and to briefly address some commonly asked questions.
    • Feel free to put the link to my scheduler in your syllabus or on Moodle: https://go.carleton.edu/scalhoun
  • Digital Scholarship assignment or project (setting up the technology itself and/or in-class instruction)
    • Variable, but 2-4 weeks lead time if possible
    • You may want to have a brief consultation with Austin Mason, Celeste Sharpe, or myself (we share information with each other) within the first week of the term. We hold Digital Project Drop-in sessions once a week (Wednesday afternoons).
    • The more time you can give us to coordinate everyone’s schedules, the better! Digital Humanities Associate student workers may help to get the project set up, or do some technical troubleshooting for your students. 

 

...or something else! Always feel free to reach out, no matter when it is.
