INLS 110-037: CIP - ISSUES AND TRENDS IN LIS
There is one primary assignment in the class -- becoming an expert on a relevant topic of your choice. You will demonstrate your developing expertise through three separate but connected assignments: a short paper describing your topic at the beginning of the course, a presentation to the class later in the semester with some discussion, and a final term paper. These three activities combined will make up 60% of your grade.
Other assignments include a "getting to know you" mutual interview, written reflections on your readings and responses to those of other class members through entries on a class blog. Class attendance and participation is important and will count for 15% of your grade as well.
See the box below for dates when each of the assignments listed above is due and for links to more detailed descriptions of each of these assignments.
