Do you struggle with getting your students to use quality, relevant resources in their research assignments? In this session, librarians will share best practices for scaffolding information literacy into your classroom curriculum through Canvas. Information literacy involves recognizing when information is needed and being able to locate, evaluate, and use that information effectively. We will discuss information literacy scaffolding in your syllabi, assignments, rubrics, and resources in your course.
Student-student interactions are an essential element of active, meaningful learning. How might you go beyond Canvas and leverage Twitter as a vehicle to connect your learners in reflections and dialogue? Each day 100 million people use Twitter to share brief communications and resources with a global audience and 80% of these interactions occur from mobile devices. In this session, Chelsea Cohen and Gena Estep will share their pedagogical applications of Twitter to engage their students in dialogue with authors and creative, historical role-playing activities.
