Predictable Misunderstandings in Information Literacy: Anticipating Student Misconceptions To Improve Instruction 

Join Instructional Librarian Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe as she shares initial findings from her research into predictable misunderstandings students harbor toward information literacy, and how librarians can tailor instruction to correct these. In any domain of learning, it is helpful to anticipate common student misconceptions—however such systematic research is only beginning for information literacy. Hinchliffe will discuss her groundbreaking research, and explore how libraries can design instruction to more effectively teach these important skills.
