On their time:
If you don't have time for to me to come to your class, please consider some of these services: create a course guide to assist students in assignments and further edification, add current awareness via a RSS feed on your Blackboard page, or add links to learn better websearching skills. I can also create online tutorials for specific databases. Feel free to direct your students to me during my office hours or to set up a Four-Warm Bodies session.
Guides: A course guide or subject guide that focuses attention on relevant sources or services and act as a primer to start exploring.
Student-requested sessions/Four-Warm Bodies: This arrangement is made between at least 4 students and myself to come to Hariri and teach them a database such as Bloomberg or other complicated databases that requires some kind of hands on experience to understand how to use it.
Office Hours: While classes are in session I can be found in Hariri 157 every Monday and Tuesday 2-3, at Lauinger Library every Monday 4-6, and by appointment.
