Cochrane, Sandra and Goh, Steven C. (2008) Using an authentic learning environment to help students see that there's more to research than Google and Wikipedia: a reflection. In: AaeE 2008: To Industry and Beyond, 07-10 Dec 2008, Yeppoon, Queensland, Australia.
[Abstract]: Authentic learning environments open up opportunities to help students learn about the value of research skills and the importance of professional sources (two aspects of information literacy). Individual students begin to see how limiting a reliance on Google and Wikipedia is to the development of their professional knowledge base. But, it is important to recognise that these skills and knowledge are built over time. Information literacy is not achieved in one course alone. It grows as discipline knowledge grows over an entire program.
