Creating Informed Learners in the Classroom
Do you have students who struggle to effectively use evidence in your class projects, efficiently use disciplinary processes to make decisions, or value and make use of different types of information in your course?
Creating Informed Learners in the Classroom project is a partnership between Purdue University, the University of Arizona, and the University of Nebraska, Lincoln to create or enhance student projects and learning activities that teach students information strategies to help them succeed in the course and beyond.
