When students are learning research skills and the research process, there is often a focus on secondary sources, both print and online. As a librarian, I work with students and teachers, and I’ve found that including primary sources in research not only provides a unique opportunity to construct knowledge, but also engages students, driving their research forward.
Join us for this one-hour webinar, January 21st at 4pm EST to explore how primary sources can play a key role in learning research skills. This webinar will illustrate areas in an inquiry research process where primary sources can play a key role as well as how primary sources interplay with each other and with secondary sources to afffect student learning.
If you can’t participate in the webinar, you can view a recording which will be available shortly after the session. Recordings of past events, information on future webinars, and information about joining the webinar are available here.
