Presentation Description

This workshop builds on the findings of the first set of data generated by the Citation Project {www.citationproject.net/}, a multi-institution research project whose purpose is to compile an aggregate description of how college students use the research sources that they cite. Workshop participants will be briefly introduced to the methods of citation context analysis used to analyze the papers and sources of first-year college students from sixteen colleges and universities, and to the major findings of this study. This form of textual and source analysis reveals how effectively students are understanding and using the sources they cite and has implications for writing teachers, librarians, and policy-makers. Participants in this hands-on workshop will explore these implications and develop possible responses that they can take back to their own institutions.
