Finding the Needle in the Haystack: Informational Fluency and Digital Literacies

More than ever before, students today have a wealth of information at their finger tips, but students are less able to sort through the digital landscape to find the best information for their assignment and writing needs.

In this session we offer best practices to improve students' critical thinking and awareness of resources needed to improve their academic writing.
