Presentation Description

This presentation will discuss the outcomes of a two-year project conducted in upper-level Shakespeare courses at the University of Central Florida. The project was designed to determine the effectiveness of employing wikis to enhance the information literacy skills of undergraduate English majors. This presentation will focus on the unique challenges we faced, especially regarding assessment and the need to construct a skills test that is both course-specific and that takes into account the changing nature of conducting research in a digital environment.
