Literacies for Research: Teaching Students How to Research Successfully in a Digital Landscape

Teaching students to accept that the easiest path is not always the best path, to read critically, analyze evidence, and challenge assumptions is thorny. Students directed to focus on ethical use, audience, and impact when publishing their learning often ignore those prescriptions. Yet students need digital, media, and global literacy, In this session, presenters will highlight effective and engaging instructional strategies to help learners master them.
