Integrating information literacy in your course – top

 Integrating information literacy in your course

As part of their work, students have to search for information. Sometimes they can make use of a reference list, but at some point, they have to search for additional information, whether it’s a book, an article or other types of information.
The library not only provides books, journals and databases but also supports teachers in learning students how to become more information literate. Being information literate means that students are able to define their research question, know where and how to search for information, know how to evaluate and manage that information and in the end can create new information that builds upon that.

The library organises workshops, has made some online tutorials and instructional videos. Tutorials, video’s and additional information can be found on the Skills & Support page.
