Information Fluency, a .5 Credit Course Offered This Spring

Posted on November 2nd, 2015 by

Information Fluency courseBarbara Fister is teaching Information Fluency this spring, a .5 credit course that meets on Tuesday afternoons from 2:30 to 4:20 throughout the spring semester. This course gives students interested in going to graduate or professional school—or who simply want to know more about research—an immersion in the structure of the literature of their major field and exposure to research tools and collections. Students will conduct a literature review on a topic of their choice and analyze aspects of their discipline’s traditions, compare them to traditions in other fields, and explore the social and ethical dimensions of research. This course pairs well with other research-intensive courses that you might be taking in the spring. It is discussion-based and hands-on and has always been surprisingly fun. You can browse a syllabus from a previous semester to get an idea of what we’ve done in the past.
