New Demands, New Approaches: Achieving Information Literacy and Competency in the 21st Century
The 21st century demands that students research and integrate information from a variety of sources and in unique ways. Students will need improved research practices along with access to a variety of research materials. Educators can benefit from understanding how students currently use sources within their academic writing.
This 30-minute webcast discusses how Turnitin helps educators uncover where students get their source material and how they integrate that research into their writing. This information aids instructors and librarians in developing instructional practices to enhance information literacy and competency.
