When we do online research, much of our decision-making is fast, intuitive, and emotional but--for educated researchers--it interacts at key points with a system that’s slower, more deliberative and logical. We look at what we call “points of friction”--opportunities for teaching at key decision-making moments. This hands-on session walks through typical research scenarios, exploring how to help students and faculty cultivate intentionality in their online research. Wifi-enabled device recommended.

I cannot make this meeting, since I am chairing another meeting that meets at this time. Are there handouts or notes that someone could send me? This topic looks very interesting and I wish you a great meeting. Thanks!
