Student learning in the information age by Patricia Senn Breivik( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Student Learning in the Information Age, Patricia Senn Breivik offers an in-depth examination of resource-based learning as an important new paradigm for higher education. This concept shifts the focus from teaching to learning by requiring students to select their own learning materials from a wide range of real-world information resources. A resource-based approach helps students assume more responsibility for their own learning, and it provides a practical means of addressing differences in students' educational needs. Breivik highlights examples of colleges and universities that are already using this approach successfully and offers a framework to help educators work with campus information specialists to create resource-based learning programs. This new work will be of great value to academic leaders, campus information providers, and faculty members who are concerned with preparing students for lifelong learning
