Presentation Description

McConnell Librarians have developed an exercise for one-shot Web evaluation sessions that is based on the constructivism theory and emphasizes self-learning. Workshop participants will actively take part in this exercise to gain first-hand knowledge of how this novel approach successfully overcomes the deficiencies of the old school method of providing a checklist of criteria for web evaluation. Participants will develop alternate technique/versions of employing the exercise based on results of the web evaluation assessment.
