Location: Wilson S30B
Webinar Leader: Steven Bell, Temple University

The better our understanding of the process students go through in conducting academic research and their behavior as researchers, the better job we can do in helping them to become better researchers, better writers and more critical in their approaches to evaluating and synthesizing information. Whether you call it information literacy or research skill building, helping undergraduates and graduate students to become effective researchers is an outcome shared by librarians and faculty. In this workshop, led by Steven Bell of Temple University, the findings of research studies produced by Project Information Literacy will be used as a framework to enhance our knowledge of student research behaviors and explore strategies for helping them to strengthen those skills. Guests will include Dr. Michael Eisenberg, co-founder of Project Information Literacy (on March 13) and librarians who are using the Project Information Literacy findings to reach out to faculty for collaboratively advancing campus information literacy initiatives.
