Infobase Quick Hits: Information Literacy for First-Year Instruction: Webinar
How do you build successful academic researchers? By first teaching them what academic research is. Start with teaching the basics of information literacy and building critical-thinking skills, and then let them begin to explore. But, how can you fit successful IL instruction into a crowded course load and curriculum? Where can you find materials to build critical thinkers? Join us for a brief presentation to see how Infobase can support the basics.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- How librarians and educators can provide information literacy instruction asynchronously with more than 100 simple plug-and-play modules covering everything from academic integrity, recognizing bias, and lateral reading to proper citation techniques using Information Literacy – Core (also known as InfoLit – Core).
- How building critical-thinking skills is supported by both InfoLit – Core and Issues & Controversies.
