The goal of this 1-credit, lecture/lab course is to lay a foundation for academic research in the emerging digital environment. Interactive learning emphasizes hands-on use of technology and especially of authoritative sources in the “Deep Web,” including the digital library. UC 170 employs multiple learning modes, such as discussion, case studies, online searching, readings, and lectures. Student work is done solo as well as collaboratively via exercises, written reports, and development of a technology skills resume. The course explores new concepts, techniques, and discovery tools, as well as addresses academic integrity, source citations and use, search strategies, and evaluation of digital sources.

Section 002 is focused on research related to the SOCIAL SCIENCES.
