Using Online Tools to Build Undergraduate Research Skills [Munch & Mull]

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Mon, 2018-01-29 17:00
West Campus

How can online tools improve students’ research skills? Adela Deanova, Duke doctoral candidate in Philosophy, took on that question. As a 2016-2017 Bass Instructional Fellow apprenticing with the Center for Instructional Technology (CIT), she focused on how to build archival research skills while innovating a traditional course. (Read more about Adela and the Bass OA project here: https://cit.duke.edu/blog/2016/12/innovative-teaching-undergraduate-philosophy-bass-online-apprentice-project/).

Adela used the course management tool Sakai (https://sakai.duke.edu/) and the new portfolio tool Pebble Pad (https://portfolio.duke.edu/) to create modular archival research activities for students in Professor Andrew Janiak's Gender and Philosophy course. Creating these smaller, scaffolded tasks and then providing students with a means to digitally publish their work (and instructors an easy way to evaluate that work) offers a novel approach for building students literacy in research methods and digital publishing. 

Join us for a brown-bag conversation with Adela about this approach to building undergraduate students’ research skills. Light refreshments will be served. This talk, co-sponsored by CIT, is part of the Munch & Mull Digital Scholarship series.

  • understand motivations for engaging in scholarship about teaching;
  • identify possible pathways for their own work as teacher/scholars and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).
Lunch will be provided.  Please RSVP to vanessa.turnier@duke.edu
 
Leslie Schiff is a Professor of Microbiology and Immunology and Associate Dean for University Curriculum at the University of Minnesota.
