Who better to teach information management skills than librarians? Run-of-the-mill library instruction rarely leaves time to cover topics such as current awareness tools, copyright concerns or scholarly communication education. The Savvy Researcher asks us to reconsider the drop-in workshop as a venue for the inquisitive graduate student. In this interactive session, we’ll demonstrate several active learning techniques including PowerLearn, a form of speed dating for instruction. You will develop a lesson plan to implement a workshop/module customized for the needs of your institution. Don’t miss the Pecha Kucha, “Every path has it’s puddle: We wore rain boots so you don’t have to.”

  • I was teaching a RefWorks workshop a few semesters ago, and a student stayed afterwards to talk. I was a little surprised when she asked me, “How do you keep your information organized?” That’s a loaded question! I hadn’t really thought about this as an overall strategy, I guess I had simply adopted practices that seemed convenient over time. For example, I keep my email in folders, I like to read my articles in print and I still bookmark websites in my browser. And the clincher was when she added, “You are the information organization expert, after all!” Is it possible that there is a missing piece – teaching advanced research and information management skills? As Stephen mentioned yesterday in his keynote address, students need a variety of learning opportunities – and by looking at information management skills, we are helping our students develop lifelong learning skills.
