Thanks Jenny, for sharing that. 2 points occur to me.
I have come across Susan Trower’s Lib guides and found them helpful. I have been using MS OneNote to create a similar guide and wondered if anyone else had used this as a free alternative to LibGuides. Can anyone explain the advantage of LibGuides to me?
I think this is also getting to the nub of my current difficulty with teaching and Inquiry. I need to teach our Year 12 students how to reference as they have never been taught this as a skill – either as an integrated skill in an Inquiry process or as a skill on it’s own. I am working on embedding this, amongst other skills, from year 7 so in time this will become less of a problem. However, we also have an intake of students from other schools at Year 12 and so we will always need to offer this skill as a top up.
My question really is when it is necessary to teach a specific part of the process should I be aiming to embed this into a broader piece of work or just accept that this is not the time – that their EE is that broader piece of work – and just teach them why and how to reference?
