Announcements

Faculty Development Session, Wednesday, Feb. 14, 12:30-1:20 p.m.

How do students approach research and how do faculty and library staff effectively teach students how to do research?

At this session, Kendra, Chris Nelson, and Meghan Dowell will discuss findings from student-led peer interviews. Which research skills have students found most useful? How have various class sessions and assignments provided the knowledge and experience students need to develop into effective researchers? What are some steps we can take to make sure students get the instruction and support they need?
