Part of the self-directed programming at the University of Guelph Library is a series of new blended face-to-face and online workshops that target digital literacy skill development and digital citizenship. Through these workshops we combine digital literacy skills like managing digital identities and creating infographics and use of tools like Google Scholar and Zotero to allow students to successfully manage and create opportunities for themselves as digital citizens. Join us to explore ways to engage high school and undergraduate students with these vital skills via a blended instruction model.

Key benefits:

  • Learn how to use problem-based learning in self-directed/supplemental programming
  • Explore resources for teaching 21st century digital citizenship and literacy skills
  • Identify key aspects of expanding beyond tool-based instruction
  • Take away benefits and tips for developing a blended learning approach for self-directed / supplemental programming for undergraduates
