Information Literacy in the Classroom: Tips and Tools [Event Flyer]
Presented By: Anne-Marie Deitering, MLS, Oregon State University
"I want to assign more research, but with the Internet, it's so easy for them to plagiarize." "You have your ways of doing things, and you just don't realize all of the resources the library has." "They don't seem to understand that just because a blog has 'scholar' in the title, it's not a scholarly journal!?!"
These are just some of the frustrations faculty express when asked about their students' information skills. Today's information landscape is complex and quick to change -- how can you possibly keep up? In this presentation we will discuss some of the conceptual barriers students face as they make the transition to college-level research, and we will generate ideas about how to address those barriers in the classroom. We will look at some real-world activities and assignments, and brainstorm some new ideas. Come prepared with your own ideas, activities and challenges.
