Before attending library instruction sessions, first-year writing students complete a series of online lessons. These lessons prepare students for in-person information literacy instruction and a hands-on research experience. A new set of online learning modules focuses not only on traditional library instruction--topic development, research and reading strategies, search tools--but the mindset with which students approach their research. The first module invites students to experience intellectual humility--the idea that they do not know everything about a subject and that seeking for and respecting diverse views offers opportunities to learn. Students learn to view research as exploration, to see information in the context of a conversation with a variety of voices, and to focus on research for the sake of learning. This presentation will discuss the development of the learning module as well as assessments of student learning outcomes.

Learning objectives:
Research as exploration
Information is situated in conversations
Research requires intellectual humility
