  • Speaking notes:It seems like defining is half the battle so why are we all so concerned about that next step, the application of the skills? Because we know that applying information skills extends beyond campus. We focus on students’ gaining these skills for the sake of their academic careers, but we also keep in mind that these same basic skills—determining an information need, finding information, evaluating information and applying information—continually reappear in various forms throughout students’ lifetimes.
  • Speaking notes:Ambitious goals, large responsibilities. On top of that, these challenges are faced.
  • Speaking notes:Quiz the librarians about the two questions on the left. Once you reveal the answers, emphasize that numbers this high show that students are confident in their abilities and are able to define information skills. For instance, of the 1,036 students who responded, 460 used words related to finding information, 307 referred to evaluating information and 263 used terms related to using information. Our survey went a step further and asked these confident students to try their hand at applying the information skills. Based on their self-described level of skill, how many students do you think look for a copyright symbol to determine accuracy of a source? (show answer) How many do you think rely on open web sources regularly when conducting research?Looking back at our stats on the left side, remember our 97% of students who could define plagiarism? 74% of college students have admitted to violating their school’s academic integrity policy at least once [DuPree, D., & Sattler, S. (2010). McCabe academic integrity survey report. Retrieved fromhttp://www.depts.ttu.edu/provost/qep/docs/McCabe_Academic_Integrity_Report_Cover.pdf]Clearly, we’ve found the gap: students can define information skills but they cannot apply these skills. They need help but they don’t even realize that they need help.
