Presentation Description

Workshop participants will be introduced to the research methods used by The LILAC Project [http://lilac-group.blogspot.com/] to investigate students’ research habits at the beginning of an assignment. Facilitators will introduce the Research Aloud Protocol (RAP) used to capture a fifteen-minute research session showing what students are actually doing when they conduct research and why they are making the choices they do. Workshop attendees will participate in identifying better understand students’ information literacy skills beyond their perceived abilities. Results from the LILAC Project pilot study highlight areas at the beginning of research where effective pedagogy may be able to assist in improving student information literacy acquisition. The RAP method can serve as a valuable method for understanding student information literacy skills and developing more effective pedagogical approaches to information literacy. Participants in this workshop will also be invited to participate in The LILAC Project’s multi-institutional study.
