Abstract

Learn how to help students make a term paper more than just an information gathering exercise. This hands-on workshop for faculty will use sample assignments to provide practical advice on how to get students to ask engaging research questions, use discipline-specific information tools and library collections, and evaluate and synthesize findings. Using this approach teaches students transferable skills in the research and writing process. Bring along a term paper assignment, if you’d like.
