October 2016 Site of the Month

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.

October 2016 Site of the Month: Student2Scholar: Academic Literacies and Research Skills for Social Science Graduate Students
Interview with:  Cory Laverty (Queen’s University); Monique Flaccavento (University of Toronto); Elan Paulson (Western University)
Interviewer: Jennifer Sharkey

Project description: Student2Scholar (S2S) is a series of ten self-paced, interactive, online and openly available modules built on the Association of College & Research Libraries’ Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. S2S learning outcomes are designed to help students develop their critical thinking, organization, research, and communication skills, to enable them to participate more actively and confidently in their communities of research. Modules incorporate a range of motivational strategies such as badging, quizzes, self-reflections, an online research workbook and other interactives. A facilitators’ guide for instructors and librarians also enables integration of any or all modules into face-to-face, blended, or online learning scenarios.
