March 2018 Site of the Month

The Peer-Reviewed Instructional Materials Online (PRIMO) Committee of the Instruction Section of ACRL is pleased to announce that a new Site of the Month interview has been posted to our committee website.

March 2018 Site of the Month: Intro Tutorials for Engineers 

Interview with: Graham Sherriff
Interviewer: Marcia Rapchak

Project Description: “Intro Tutorials for Engineers” is a suite of interactive tutorials created in 2017 to support engineering seniors at the University of Vermont. These tutorials provide seniors taking capstone courses in Civil, Environmental, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering with foundational instruction in key types of text-based information. Each tutorial defines a type of publication and its characteristics, explains its value for engineering research, and presents key resources and search strategies. This instruction becomes the basis for in-depth research assignments. The tutorials were created in the Guide on the Side platform, which integrates authentic, real-time web content and offers opportunities for interactive learning.
