By Eva Sclippa What is your name? Where are you in the field currently? What has been your teaching experience thus far? My name is Eva Sclippa; I’m currently First Year Engagement Librarian at UNC Wilmington, but the lesson plan I’m sharing today is from my time at Alfred University.

I have had a wide range of teaching experience in my past, including the usualRead More →
