Tredway Library

The librarians at Tredway Library are pleased to host an exciting national conference on the Augustana College campus, "New Directions in Information Fluency: A Conference," a conversation among librarians, faculty, and administrators (and students!) about teaching research-as-process, research writing, and primary source literacy to undergraduate students.

Conference Compasss Rose

The conference, free to Augustana faculty and students, is around the corner--Friday, April 4, 5:00 p.m. to Saturday, April 5, 5:00 p.m--twenty-four hours of learning and sharing experiences, research, and  ideas. Please join us! More information here, including registration:

Keynote speaker, Sandra Jamieson, director of Writing Across the Curriculum at Drew University and a principal researcher on the Citation Project, will speak Saturday morning on "Students' Source Choices & Uses: Lessons from the Citation Project." Drawing on findings from the Citation Project that looked at how students use research sources in their writing, Dr. Jamieson will suggest ways to create transformative student research by teaching students to read and use a variety of texts to create a conversation around a topic, to move beyond information literacy to information fluency.

In concurrent sessions throughout the day on Saturday, librarians and faculty from across the country will present panels on such topics as the role of reading in first-year inquiry, the challenge of teaching concepts rather than skills, a development approach to scientific inquiry in psychology, the integration of research and community engagement, productive collaborations between instruction librarians and teaching faculty, and much more. We look forward to welcoming you to "New Directions in Information Fluency."

And don't forget to attend the Friday Conversation where you'll get a chance to hear and work with Dr. Jamieson in a more intimate atmosphere. Stefanie writes about the workshop HERE.

Hope to see you Friday and Saturday!
