This assignment was developed for students in HSF 090- Health Sciences who attend a 1-hour library session. The focus of this session and assignment is “research as inquiry.”
Research is iterative and depends upon asking increasingly complex or new questions whose answers in turn develop additional questions or lines of inquiry in any field. Students will practice this iterative process by experimenting with the trial and error necessary in the research process as they repeat and refine their searches. They will be encouraged to explore the way cultural competence changes depending on their field or topic focus.
This session will give students the chance to develop integrative learning by connecting their prospective field with the professional literature. Choosing and reading an article from their field will also help them develop inquiry skills.
Main Course Learning Objectives:
- Students will be introduced to the concept of library academic resources
- Students will learn the strengths and weaknesses of different forms of information
