Learning Outcomes: 

Students will be able to articulate a situation in their life where they conduct research, create knowledge, and share it with others.

Individual or Group:

Course Context (e.g. how it was implemented or integrated): 

A graded discussion in a 1-credit, online, library research class.

Potential Pitfalls and Teaching Tips: 

It might be nice to have the students read something on metaliteracy, because that is what they are doing here--self-reflecting on research and knowledge creation. But I have gotten as far as that, identifying and giving them a reading.
