SCC Information Handling Lab - 413, Archibald S. Alexander Library
Academic librarians are no strangers to assessment, but figuring out how to implement authentic assessment can be tricky. We all want our instruction to help students, but how do we know if they are actually learning? Better yet, how can we make this process enjoyable for both the educators (that’s us!) and the students? This webcast will discuss the importance of designing authentic learning activities tied to information literacy learning outcomes.
The NJLA College & University Section / ACRL-NJ is hosting this free national ACRL webcast at the Scholarly Communication Center, 4th Floor, Alexander Library, College Avenue, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ on 4/29.
