Bridging the Skill Gap: Helping Non-Traditional Students Develop Research Skills When They Need It Most
Wray, Christina C.; Montgomery, Renee C.
Adult Higher Education Alliance, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Adult Higher Education Alliance (43rd, Orlando, FL, Mar 7-8, 2019)
Many of the research skills needed to succeed in higher education are never explicitly taught. Most students learn through experience and exposure. However, working-class students don't always grow up in academic environments that provide the same exposure to these skills. This paper will explore ways to help working-class and non-traditional students develop fundamental research skills while respecting their busy schedules. The University of Central Florida Library's "Research Tips Tuesdays" webinar series will be used as a model to help instructors identify skill gaps, design scaffolded skill building programs, and brainstorm potential campus partners.
