Session Title

WebQuests: Recycling and Renewing

Description

WebQuests are online learning modules designed to encourage student participation and exploration. They are uniquely suited to library and information literacy instruction given the prevalence of web searching and the need for students to have information literacy skills when conducting these searches. They create highly independent learners and are inquiry based, rather than the following of linear steps. They also lend themselves to real time assessment of student learning goals. WebQuests have recently undergone a renewed look after falling off the grid for several years. The presentation will take a look at a WebQuest created by the presenter, including its construction, implementation, responses by learners and professors, problems, and assessment issues.
