Student Learning Outcomes for WRT 1060
GOAL ONE: SEARCHING
  • Searching is Strategic
  • Research as Inquiry

Students will learn the importance of an inquiry-based approach through which they will build, refine, and engage with iterative search strategies informed by their research process. At the end of the IL modules, students will be able to . . .
  1. build and apply an initial search strategy based on their topic.
  2. demonstrate at least two strategies for refining search results.
  3. read a database record to determine an item's publication date, publication type, and general topic.
  4. identify at least two additional avenues of inquiry for their topic based on analysis of relevant records.

GOAL TWO: EVALUATION
  • Authority is Constructed and Contextual
  • Information Creation as a Process
  • Scholarship is a Conversation

As part of an iterative search process, students will begin to understand the importance of authority, information format, and scholarly conversation in evaluating the information they find for their research needs. At the end of the IL modules, students will be able to . . .
  1. determine the authority of a source in the context of their research needs.
  2. distinguish between types of content found in different information formats.
  3. evaluate the usefulness of sources in the context of their topics.
