Further your teaching practice at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design this fall, by coming to the display section and reading area for books and resources on pedagogy, teaching and learning at the Emily Carr Library from August 12th to September 16th. The library already has a number of textbooks on hand on pedagogy that will be featured, with new ones recently arrived and open textbooks on loan from the B.C. Open Textbook collection.
The books are displayed on the main floor of the library, on the shelves above the staircase, with more books in the designated reading area located on the second floor of the library - just take the stairs across from the checkout counter or use the elevator located at the far end of the library. There is a computer kiosk setup on the main floor in the window to search the Teaching and Learning Series, the BC Open Textbooks Collection and other Open Educational Resources. Be sure to also ask the librarians about their fantastic Artist Book Collection and how to organize class workshops for it - http://www.connect.ecuad.ca/library/collections/artistsbooks
All of these titles on display can now be found in the library catalogue under the new Teaching and Learning Series. It is a developing faculty and staff resource, so if you have any suggestions for books, journals or electronic resources, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
