about this item
The Road to Active Thinking offers suggestions on how to solve this challenge by including academic formation as an integral part of university/college studies. The authors discuss the various aspects of how academic integrity and information literacy are linked to learning, and provide examples on how our theories can be put into practice.
The book considers how social change impacts students, the impact of digital technologies, and the proliferation of information sources. The book then considers the normative side of higher education, namely academic integrity and the personal development process of students. Following sections consider cognitive aspects of the transition to higher education, including learning strategies and critical thinking. Finally, the book asks how information literacy and teaching in higher education might be reformed to help students meet contemporary challenges.
