If yes please specify:
Assignment description and sample topics: I have two sections of RD 115 that
meet on Thursday and Friday--one section at 8-9:50 and another from 11-12:50.
I would like to assign a simple research project where students become an
"expert" about a particular question they have. I would like an
introduction to library resources, some feedback about how to phrase a
question for research, and I would really like some formal instruction around
smarter ways to use the web. I realize this is short notice, but the need
is greater than I anticipated. Any Tuesday or Thursday in Weeks 5 or 6 that
could accommodate both sections will work for me.
Upload class assignment and other relevant documents:
What are your learning outcomes for this session? Smarter, better web
searches. An introduction to finding materials relevant to a broad research
question both online and in the library itself.
Other notes: The morning class has 20-25 students in attendance each day, and
the 11 o'clock class has around 25. They will be conducting research for a
project due Week 9.
