Teaching Resources

Selected Articles and Research

These curated articles in the categories below are of varying length and provide research, examples, and guidance on a variety of teaching topics. They are organized via a Library Research Guide* and are loosely organized by topic. Have a suggestion for an article or topic to include? Email Tyler Roeger at troeger@elgin.edu

CETL Teaching Resources Home Page

*In addition to organizing the teaching materials on the CETL site, Library Research Guides can be created for any course or assignment. ECC librarians are eager to work with faculty to create tailored guides for any discipline. If you’d like to reach out to a librarian about possibly creating a Research Guide for one of your courses, contact Stacey Shah at sshah@elgin.edu.
