“Interactive Model for Teaching Research Skills”

Christian Miller


Christian Miller, a librarian in ILR, works with instructors to inform students about research techniques and citation formats so that student’s research papers correctly cite others’ works. He felt that an online tutorial that could inform students about the issues, and quiz them, would help supplement his instruction.

We developed an engaging tutorial that leads students through the research process and provides examples of correct attribution. Current examples of plagiarism are also included, and information about how violations of Cornell’s Academic Code of Integrity are handled. Interactive exercises explaining the different citation formats for books, journals, and websites are provided and students can quiz themselves throughout the tutorial. At completion, they can take a final quiz and have their passing score sent to their instructor. The tutorial is modular, so Miller can work with instructors to use the parts that are most important for the particular class.
