Academic Roundtable – Helping Students Develop Research and Technology Skills

Categories: For Faculty, For Staff

Please join us on Friday, November 15, 2013 in the Davis Family Library, room 230 at 12:15 p.m.

We’ve been tracking the research and technology skills of our incoming students for the past few years. Most students need guidance on finding, evaluating and integrating sources into research papers and projects. They don’t know what a “scholarly” journal is (some think Newsweek is scholarly), they are unsure of when to cite sources, and their technology skills are varied. What can you do about this? In this session, we’ll hear from faculty who have developed assignments for first-year seminars and other classes that help students hone their research and technology skills.

Lunch will be served in the CTLR (LIB 225).  Please RSVP to dbernier@middlebury.edu by noon Thursday, November 14, 2013.
