Teaching the art of academic dialogue: a discussion on threshold concepts
ACRL (US Association of College and Research Libraries) Midwinter Current Issues Discussion Forum online
The theme is Teaching the art of academic dialogue: a discussion on threshold concepts. "Kathleen Langan, Humanities Librarian at Western Michigan University, will lead a lively discussion on the value of using threshold concepts to shape information literacy instruction. We’ll discuss the importance of teaching students the “whys” of research rather than just the “how-tos” and learn how this shift in curricular focus can help librarians impart a meaningful and lasting understanding of research.
