Ruining Google and Wikipedia: Teaching strategies that help students progress from knowledge consumers to knowledge produsers
A Spring 2016 Teaching Workshop Series Collaboration among Libraries, ASTS, and CCT
In the current age of often unlimited access to information it is important for students, particularly those introductory courses, to learn how to engage with physical and online information ethically, critically, and effectively. This series of 3 workshops will address pedagogical approaches and considerations that can help students obtain these skills. Each workshop can be taken alone, but we encourage participation in the entire series.
Specifically, each workshop will allow instructors to reflect on the skills students need to read and consume high quality information and build information literacy, to value information and distinguish between their own work and existing work as part of academic integrity, and to engage with information in the age of digital media. Instructors will leave with assignments, resources and strategies that they can use in their classroom.
Feel free to bring your lunch. Dessert will be served.
Session 2: Academic Integrity in the College Classroom
How can we address academic integrity in our teaching in a way that supports student learning? In this workshop, participants will consider this and other questions as they reflect on how to understand this central value and think about how to structure their teaching to promote an appreciation for academic integrity among their students. During the session, participants will:
· Discuss potential definitions of academic integrity and what they imply for one’s approach to teaching.
· Develop strategies for addressing academic integrity in their teaching, focusing especially on structuring assignments to support proper citation of sources.
· Learn about resources on campus that can help instructors and students promote academic integrity.
