Primary Sources Workshop: Creative Applications for the Hybrid Classroom

Primary Sources Workshop: Creative Applications for the Hybrid Classroom Online

Planning your fall courses? Join librarians and archivists from Roesch, the Marian Library, the U.S. Catholic Special Collection, and the University Archives and Special Collections for a 2-part interactive workshop series on teaching with primary sources. 

Engagement with primary source materials increases students' critical thinking and analytical skills, while also preparing them to successfully navigate a variety of information sources that can be utilized within many disciplines and courses.  Learn how the Marian Library’s collection connects to environmentalism & sustainability, examine University Archives materials about the African-American experience, see how Roesch Library databases include documents that shed light on how people dealt with plagues and pandemics. 

Session 1: Assets in the University Libraries

The first workshop will focus on primary and archival sources available from the University Libraries. Extensive holdings across the University Libraries collections can have applications within many disciplines. Examples during the workshop will include:

  • Items in the Marian Library’s collection that connect to environmentalism and sustainability.

  • University Archives materials about the African-American experience at the University of Dayton.

  • Artifacts from the U.S. Catholic Special Collection demonstrating Catholic material culture.

  • Roesch Library databases that include documents showing how medicine and government dealt with plagues and pandemics.

Session 2: Pedagogy

The second workshop will explore pedagogical approaches to using these materials and ways that attendees can directly connect these sources with their areas of teaching and research. Attendees will learn about a variety of classroom opportunities such as experiential learning, instruction sessions or research projects, and they will consider primary source possibilities, like the Libraries’ work with pandemics.

After the workshop: Book a Librarian

Following the workshop, participants can schedule consultations to explore different types of materials available in the collections; discuss ways to incorporate them, e.g., a single class visit or a research assignment; and work together to achieve course objectives.
