Abstract

BRIEF SESSION DESCRIPTION:

________________________________________________________________

FULL ABSTRACT: Students question the need to learn from textbooks and possibly outdated course material when current information is always available online. Additionally, students can find it challenging to find effective strategies to cope with the fire hose of data available 7 x 24 with no curation. Our panel will provide some hands-on tips to help your students with this problem. At last year's Innovations in Teaching & Learning conference, this panel focused on how to design course material to align with these student expectations of ubiquitous access to information and data. This year our panel will extend that conversation into discussions about guiding students through source evaluation, identifying confirmation bias in searches, and managing data overload. Our panelists will discuss their own experiences in working with students and ideas they have considered and open the discussion to the attendees.
