Tea & Treats: How to foster basic habits of scholarly inquiry in students

Wednesday, December 14, 2011 (Around 3 years ago)

Join us on Tuesday, January 17 for Tea and Treats: How to foster basic habits of scholarly inquiry in students. Come and talk about how to help students new to academic standards understand how to frame questions (rather than merely choose a topic and gather information), how to understand who is involved in conversations relevant to that question, how to choose the best sources, and how to use them effectively. Participants may bring copies of assignment prompts they have used successfully - or to bring prompts that they would like to revise. Facilitated by Barbara Fister (Library) and library staff in the Phi Beta Kappa Room from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. — come when you can and leave when you must.
