ACRL STS ILC: Science Literacy and Reading Primary Literature in Biology
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, US/Eastern
Please join us, Wednesday March 15th 1-2pm EDT (12-1pm CDT) for the monthly discussion hosted by the ACRL STS Information Literacy committee. This month, Rebecca Ziino Plotke (Research and Instruction Librarian at Worcester Polytechnic Institute) will lead our discussion: "Science Literacy and Reading Primary Literature in Biology"
This discussion will explore information seeking practices and science literacy components taught in a 1000 level (for majors) Biodiversity class. We will cover the class planning process, faculty partnership, in-class instruction, and the learning outcomes for the course. Overall we will look at how science literacy and information literacy concepts come together to teach students about primary literature.
