A Message from Terri Graham, Interim President, West and Downtown Campuses
Humanities Professor Jessica Hoeschen and Librarian Beth King launched a series of humanities research modules in Canvas that include instructional pages, helpful links, quizzes and interactive web activities. The modules also discuss the role of secondary and primary research in the humanities.
Instructors can use these modules as a supplement in any course that requires humanities research. The resources are especially helpful in preparing students for documented essays in Gordon Rule courses. The modules are:
- Research in the Humanities
- MLA for the Humanities
- Humanities Source Materials
- Humanities MLA Examples
Instructors can choose to assign the entire series or select modules that best support their individual course requirements. The modules can be accessed in one of two ways.
First, instructors can access the modules through the self-enrolling Research Workshops course, which allows students to earn badges. These badges can then be submitted for proof of completion.
Second, instructors can access the modules by importing selected module(s) into their Canvas course from the Canvas Commons (search for “library humanities” and limit to Valencia College).
