The Choosing Information paths lesson is mapped to the Information as Creation Process Frame and helps students learn to recognize that information may be perceived differently based on the format in which it is packaged. In this lesson, students identify various characteristics of information formats, and match information needs to the most appropriate digital format.

The modules can be used in fully online, flipped or face-to-face courses and can be integrated into a learning management system (LMS) so student knowledge and progress can be tracked and assessed. Developed using Articulate Storyline, the sources files are available as open source downloads under a GNU General Public License (GPLv3) from...

If scholarship is a "Conversation," students need to grasp what forces and cultures drive scholars within a discipline to converse the way they do. This slide presentation lays out the main features of disciplinary culture, the basis of all conversations. If students can learn to "read" disciplines effectively, they will be better able to grasp the nature of conversations as they do their research.
