Women and Gender Studies-Research Guide for WGS 170, 2018-2019: Home

Learning experiences about gender issues are at the core of this course and this guide will present resources to use as you complete the course's expectations and assignments.

Sometimes the smartest thing you can do in any learning experience is ask questions. Please don't hold back during your research process for this course if there is anything I can do to answer a question for you.

Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education

The Framework includes the following six ideas about information literacy:

1. Authority is Constructed and Contextual

2. information Creation is a Process

3. information Has Value

4. Research as Inquiry

5. Scholarship as Conversation

6. Searching As Strategic Exploration

There is much in each of these six concepts to explore relative to the research process when you are in college. The most important thing at the beginning of any research process is asking and re-asking questions.
