All too often, our library instruction sessions seem to wind up bogged down in the (boring) details of database mechanics rather than on the more nuanced critical thinking and evaluation skills that we ultimately want our students to master. Come to this session and learn how to work with teaching faculty to incorporate challenging learning activities into sessions while still meeting the basic informational needs and source requirements of the typical college level research assignment. There will be a brief showcase of two sample activities and then attendees will work together to design a critical thinking exercise that can be taken back and used in their own classrooms after the conference.
