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 provided.
Session 3: Creating Critical Readers
Getting students to read carefully and reflectively can be a challenge. And it is often difficult to figure out how exactly students are reading and where they may have difficulty. In this workshop, participants will explore online annotation tool and how they may be used to encourage collaborative and reflective reading. We will then extend the discussion to what does it mean to engage students digitally, why, when and how to engage students digitally successfully.
This is a hands-on workshop, please bring a laptop/tablet. Equipment is available for check-out at the Techbar in Regenstein Library should you need one.
