Description

This session, led by two librarians and an adjunct faculty member, described the benefits of replacing a traditional research paper with an I Search paper (a more informal first person research narrative) for students taking a first year inquiry course. An I Search paper facilitates student learning by encouraging students to select a topic that piques their interest and places the focus on students’ personal research journeys. Although this assignment was designed for a semester-long credit-bearing course, we discussed ways to incorporate aspects of this assignment into a library one-shot.
