Welcome to a workshop on teaching and learning with Centre for the Advancement of University Teaching (CeUL).

Target group: University teachers

About the workshop

Source criticism is a challenge in higher education as many students (often freshmen) do not pay sufficient attention to the diversity of sources, they want quick facts that they can reuse. By not being able to distinguish the quality of texts on the net, they clip and paste sentences that they collect in different documents. It is not possible to substitute academic learning with patch-writing strategies. At the same time, teachers cannot promote critical thinking without giving some examples and advices to students. As a matter of fact, it is necessary to have an attitude concerning the platforms of quick facts like Wikipedia or other encyclopaedias. Based on empirical results concerning students attitudes, the seminar will be an opportunity to work on different examples of quick facts to see the possible strategies to guide students in a scientific way.
