No matter how much time and effort we put into developing charismatic one-shot training sessions or providing students with carefully crafted LibGuides, students still struggle to learn information literacy skills. Are there more systemic problems we need to address?
Join Mary DeJong as she describes what some of those problems might be, including students' lack of motivation, poorly designed research assignments, and lack of standardization in the vocabulary of information literacy.
You’ll learn about strategies for addressing these problems at different scales – in the classroom as well as at the university level.
