    "Optional" Library Research Workshop

    Geoffrey Morse, UWP librarian and CJ liaison, will be conducting an "optional" (but strongly recommended) library research workshop on Friday, February 4th from 12 noon to 1p.m. in the Library Tech Center room on the D1 level of the library (Room D150 -- near the elevators). The purpose of this workshop is to help students with their creative measures research on criminal justice related topics using scholarly journals (as opposed to the popular press and googling!) susan

  • Keep in mind:

    ** the 5Cs: competency, consistency, cooperation, communication, and creativity.

    We expect work that will produce a professional and competitive product in a real market. We also expect that even our most creative workers will recognize throughout the semester an effective product presentation depends on good work standards from every member of the team. Team morale and expectations have a great deal to do with enforcing works standards collectively. Time to learn that process.

    At work, you aren't given tests. Neither are you here. But you are expected to demonstrate your competency and participation. Each class or volunteer participation with us is a contract job to which you commit for the semester. We not only expect the work to be done, but we also expect you to find effective ways to let us know what you are doing, and consequently, that your final work product will be a good one.

    If, for whatever reason, your work is not meeting our production standard, we are sure that you will be in touch with us to either seek employee assistance or advice. One hot clue that you may be slipping is if your name appears no where on blogs, shared readings, on small discussion groups, and if we haven't heard from you.

  • Grades are interactive and interdependent. You are responsible for telling me what you have accomplished, and verifying it either in class, in person, in an email dialogue, or meeting with me. For an explanation, read and Grades.
