Remote Teaching and Learning Resources: Teaching Support for Faculty

Teaching Support for Faculty

Throughout the current public health emergency, we are continuing to work with Northeastern instructors to support courses and research for undergraduate and graduate students. You can learn more about what and how we teach here

Leganto

Leganto is a reading list management system for Northeastern University, allowing instructors to develop a reading list within a Canvas course site. It provides the flexibility to break readings into weeks and sections and to add different types of resources to course lists, including e-books, streaming videos, self-uploaded materials, and web content.

The library has been hosting regular webinars and online workshops to assist faculty in setting up and using Leganto. Click here to see upcoming workshops.

JoVE

JoVE

JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) is a science video resource that includes a variety of resources for use in the classroom and and the lab. It has two components:

  1. Science Education Video Collection: Teaching-focused videos including concept animations, ‘scientist in action’ videos to see concepts applied, and lab manual videos that cover preparation procedures for common labs
  2. Video Journal: A peer-reviewed video methods journal, consisting of video demonstrations and detailed text protocols of new and standard methods in physical and life sciences. Students and researchers can see the details of experiments and concepts, in addition to text-based descriptions.

Head of STEM & Entrepreneurship Alissa Link has created a guide to using JoVE in the classroom that includes introductory videos, tutorials to help utilize specific features, answers to frequently asked questions, and more.

Webinars and Online Workshops

Library staff regularly hold webinars and online workshops on a number of topics, for both faculty and students.
