Beyond the F1 Key: Thinking and Teaching the Internet
within the Curriculum

Critical thinking has direct and profound connections with learning
outcome developments in college and university curriculums. By
using the rich and varied environment of the Internet to engender
critical thinking abilities, we connect our library programs to the
key movement in educational reform today. We will present two
conceptual frameworks and three case studies related to
Internet training and use in the academic library. Related poster
sessions, co-sponsored by the ACRL Science and Technology Section,
will precede the program.
