Tomorrow's Scholars Today: Collaborating to Empower Undergraduate Students to Become Knowledge Creators
Saturday, January 25, 2020
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Location: Pennsylvania Convention Center
Rather than being framed as passive recipients of information, college and university students now have increasing opportunities to engage in innovative research of their own and contribute to scholarly knowledge. Fully supporting this transition will require academic librarians to step forward out of our frequently backgrounded roles, and share our expertise as equal instructional partners with faculty. The presenters will share our experiences as the teaching team of a research methods course in religious studies, lead a discussion on the barriers to and benefits of such partnerships, and how both librarians and faculty might best pursue them.
