Alisa Rod will lead a discussion session on the “Ithaka S+R U.S. Faculty Survey: Instructors’ Views on Student Research Skills“ at the AIR Forum in Orlando.

This discussion addresses how instructors engage with issues such as developing students’ quantitative reasoning, information literacy, research skills, and critical thinking within the context of findings from the 2012 Ithaka S+R U.S. Faculty Survey.

Discussion questions include:

1. What do your faculty members see as their roles in support of student learning outcomes, both in terms of research and information literacy skills?

2. Which staff members or campus units are responsible for developing the information literacy and research skills of students?

3. How is that responsibility shared and assessed among a variety of campus units and staff members, including faculty members?

4. What are faculty members’ perceptions of student research and information literacy skills, and are those aligned with institutional strategies regarding assessment and learning outcomes?

When: Wednesday, May 28, 2:00 pm-2:45 pm (EDT)
Where: AIR Forum
The Rosen Shingle Creek, Orlando, FL
