Open Research and Information Skills Exploration (RISE) provides flexible learning options for students to learn in a relaxed setting. Currently, Open RISE is planned for Wednesday afternoons from 2:00 -3:00 pm. These sessions will either be online via Zoom or in-person in the Collaborative Learning Classroom in Ottenheimer Library, Room 101A. In-person or online sessions will be determined on a month-by-month basis this semester. They will take place every other week starting in February and ending in April.
Open RISE workshops focus on popular themes and current trends that relate to your interests. This semester, RISE will be focusing on gamification. These one-hour sessions typically incorporate peer and active learning methods. Students 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.
