“Research for Life” is designed to supplement the material and learning outcomes of ENGL101 (Comp 1). It is built as a cohesive piece, with each module building on previous concepts and clear opportunities for students to reflect on and practice the concepts that are presented. The pace at which you assign or incorporate the modules is up to you. The modules include an OER text, video tutorials, and assignments or discussions. It can be entirely self-paced to fit alongside other content within a course.
The modules are built in such a way that students will not need a synchronous meeting with a librarian, though we are always happy to offer one should you feel a follow up would be beneficial.
This Canvas course contains 13 modules exploring the concepts of information literacy, critical thinking, and academic research and expectations. Each module covers one specific area of information literacy and is about 30-45 minutes of work.
If you are interested in exploring this OER for your information literacy instruction in Comp 1, contact the Humanities liaison librarian, Kay Neary, for more details.
