NGLIĀ 1101. Research in the Digital Age. 1 Hour.

New researchers are often overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information available on the Internet. This course teaches students to efficiently search online academic, popular, and professional resources and evaluate their credibility. Since the digital era relies heavily on images as information, students will also learn to create and evaluate an infographic, a visual representation, that reflects their research. The skills learned from this class will prepare students to be more effective researchers for every academic class.
