RISE open sessions announced for fall 2021

Research and Information Skills Exploration (RISE) program announces Open RISE workshop schedule.

Open RISE provides flexible learning options for students to learn in a relaxed setting. Currently, Open RISE is planned for Tuesday afternoons alternating between in-person in the Collaborative Learning Classroom and online. Open RISE workshops focus on popular themes and current trends that relate to your interests.

These 50-minute sessions typically incorporate peer and active learning methods.  You will usually work in small groups to critically think about how and why information is created, how to seek and use the best available information to support research and rhetorical claims or solve problems.
