Course Description

In this course, students gain and practice information literacy skills while conducting research for a local non-profit. Students create research portfolios to help our community partner write grants, implement new programs, and reach new audiences. In short, our students make a difference in our community via research.

This model could be adapted at your institution. Please feel free to borrow any content you find here or contact me with any questions, or 937-775-3515
