Presentation at STLHE conference, 2012.
In this interactive workshop, first, a view of undergraduate students’ information behaviour will be offered, as informed by a librarian’s perspective. The connections between the research process and intrinsic motivation will be discussed, with the aim of exploring best practices for sparking research motivation. In other words: how can students get interested in research, and how does motivation affect their success? Next, key solutions will be discussed, vis-à-vis holistic collaborations between professors and librarians in teaching information skills and designing assignments that motivate students to engage in research tasks.
