2018 IS Annual Virtual Discussion Forum

Critical reading is defined as reading for a “. . . deeper understanding of how information is constructed, valued, and embedded within larger conversations.” But how can we best integrate critical reading into our professional practice? Join the ACRL Instruction Section’s 2018 Annual Virtual Discussion Forum for a panel discussion on defining, teaching, and promoting critical reading. This panel will view the issue from a variety of perspectives including: teaching critical reading to different student groups, using effective teaching strategies for credit-bearing versus one-shot instruction, supporting critical reading in the university curriculum, and understanding research on critical reading. The ACRL IS Discussion Group Steering Committee presents:
