Book a tutorial on information search strategies
The library's tutorial is part of academic writing and aim to help students develop their independent learning, critical thinking, and ability to search for, and evaluate, information at a scholarly level. The tutorial will contribute to the over good quality of a student's degree project.
The tutorial is primarily for the A- and C- levels and is integrated into the subjects' course- and programme syllabuses. The tutorial on critical information searches will be timetabled to coincide with a related tutorial within the subject and be connected to a piece of writing that students will be asked to do. The tutorial is planned, evaluated and followed up by librarians and teachers working together.
The tutorials consist most often of 15–20 students.
Booking of tutorial for fall semester 2013 is open until may 31. Please contact Ika Jorum or use the mailadress email@example.com for further questions.
Some of the themes discussed in the tutorials are:
- criticism of sources, evaluation of search tools and sources of information
- search tools and sources of information
