The Peer-Reviewed Instructional Materials Online (PRIMO) Committee of the Instruction Section of ACRL is pleased to announce that a new Site of the Month interview has been posted to our committee website.
April 2021 Site of the Month: Thinking Like a Scientist
Interview with: Dani Brecher Cook, Michael Yonezawa, and Phyllis Ung
Interviewer: Rebecca Maniates
Project Description: This module introduces students to the basic principles of scholarship as conversation and covers the differences between paraphrasing, summarizing, and quoting as a means of demonstrating participation in scholarly conversation. Questions, polls, and activities are included in each section as self-checks and reinforcement of the concepts. Although it stands on its own under a CC license, at Delaware County Community College, this module is part of a larger tutorial called “Research Fundamentals,” which serves as an introduction to information literacy. Access to the Research Fundamentals tutorial requires a student to login.
The full interview is available here.
