Concurrent 2D: Content Bootcamp for Today’s Classroom: in the Trenches with Instructors
Today’s instructors have a variety of content options and search tools available to support their daily work in selecting content for use in courses. With research publication output increasing exponentially, where does one start a literature search and how does one filter out the noise? What tools enable collaboration with colleagues or facilitate recommendation by peers? What formats are essential to today’s academic workflow? Does the search start with a bookshelf or a database, with a search engine or a reference librarian? Does the copyright status of content make a difference? We’ve asked professors to discuss what they consider their go-to resources to get their essential work done. Come prepared with your key questions, issues, or concerns in the content delivery and consumption space. Whether your focus is physical science, humanities or social science, you will gain valuable insight from the instructor perspective.
