Student research skills
The Library Learning and Teaching team collaborate with Subject Coordinators and LTLT (La Trobe Learning & Teaching) to develop students’ research skills in the curriculum. We work with you to develop, deliver and evaluate library research programs that are constructively aligned to course or subject Intended Learning Outcomes (mapped to the Graduate Capability of Inquiry and Analysis).
