The U of T Mississauga Library provides campus leadership for supporting, understanding, using and stewarding new and emerging technologies through the identification, experimentation, research and selection of technologies and web applications. The most significant area of technology leadership is in supporting the University's learning management system, Blackboard (Portal), for which the Library provides expert assistance (visit our Blackboard support pages for instant help).
Librarians at the U of T Mississauga Library collaborate with faculty on course design to include information-related learning outcomes. We also facilitate insight into student skills through the assessment of information, technology, spatial, and visual- related competencies. And, we provides curricular support through in-class teaching and co-curricular support through a variety of Library and UTM programs (e.g., Head Start, utmONE, genONE, rezONE).
Faculty interested in collaborating with a Librarian to develop course materials, assess information-related learning outcomes, use instructional technology effectively, or explore other areas of interest are welcome to contact a Liaison Librarian or schedule a consultation appointment.
Workshops on a variety of topics are available and/or may be developed collaboratively to custom fit your needs or those of your students.
