Information Literacy Virtual Workshop Series: Decoding Information Literacy Learning Bottlenecks

Hosted by: 
University Libraries
September 16, 2021 | 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Do your students struggle with research or inquiry-based assignments where they are required to locate, evaluate and use a variety of different information sources?

Some of these challenges may be due to the gap between how experienced researchers approach research and how novice learners approach research. In this workshop, part of the University Libraries Information Literacy Virtual Workshop Series, you will be introduced to Decoding the Disciplines (Pace & Middendorf), a model for reducing the gap between expert and novice thinking. You will learn about how you can use this model to help identify student learning bottlenecks related to information literacy—finding, evaluating and using information—and will be provided with strategies and activities you can use to help students overcome these bottlenecks. 

This virtual program will include automated captioning. If you require an accommodation such as live captioning or interpretation to participate in this event, please email as soon as possible. Requests made at least one week prior to the event will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the university will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.

Submit your event for consideration to the UITL events list.
