Project poster

INFO 101: Research Essentials is a 2-credit course taught by librarians at Pierce College that introduces students to research skills, ranging from building a topic to locating and evaluating information. For this project, the librarians were interested in assessing and updating the current course shell or set of foundational modules to see how they could build a more inclusive, anti-racist course. Through a survey of librarians, research of anti-racist teaching tools, assessment, and revision of the course, we were able to pinpoint ways to better support students and highlight their unique perspectives.
