Description

As librarians, we often focus our teaching on helping students gather and evaluate sources. To take online learning to the next level, how can librarians teach students to engage meaningfully with sources and develop strategies for reading academic texts? In this session, a community college librarian will share her experience embedding reading activities in an online information literacy course. These flexible, adaptable learning tools can be used in a variety of instructional scenarios, including one-shot instruction. Attendees will learn ways to improve students' research skills while also increasing their reading comprehension. This session is appropriate for all librarians who are inspired to encourage and develop academic literacy skills.
