CaseLearns is back, bigger and better than ever. This free instructional program held at Kelvin Smith Library has undergone improvements with a longer view approach. Students and faculty can establish research and scholarship skills through this program, which will advance their education and Case Western Reserve University through applied use of technologies.
The goals in mind with an improved CaseLearns program are to slow attendees down, allowing ample time to ask fundamental and theoretical questions, and, in some cases, to foster group collaboration.
“We want you to see us as an ongoing research partner,” Jared Bendis, creative new media officer, said.
The staff who teach the CaseLearns courses are highly “trained professionals who want to activate KSL and the Freedman Center, becoming a feeder to our resources.”
The revamped program features 33 different workshops, including eight new ones:
Library Is Fun
Protective Enclosures for Library Materials
Research Data Management
Open Access and the Right to Research
Basic Library Research Skills
Creating GIFs / Memes From Family Videos
Video Tutorial Creation Using Camtasia
Introduction to Data Visualization
CaseLearns start times coordinate with the university’s block scheduling system to make attending even easier.
