The library's teaching

Do your students need to learn more about searching for, evaluating and using scholarly information? The library offers teaching on critical information seeking and participate in the project "Introduction to academic writing". 

Critical information seeking

The library´s teaching gives students at Södertörn University or the Red Cross University College the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and abilities to independently and critically search for scholarly information, and to evaluate the reliability and relevance of sources.

Our teaching is free of charge. It should be integrated into the subjects' course and programme syllabuses and scheduled at a time when the students have a writing assignment within their subject studies that is related to critical information searches, for example essay writing. The quality of the teaching increases when planned and evaluated by the librarian and the teacher togheter. The classes takes place in groups of maximum 20 students. We prefer that you inlcude a question about information seaches in the course evaluation.

If you are interested in designing your own acitivites where your students get the opportunity to learn more about searching for, evaluating and using scholarly information, the library can serve as support.
