(Access password: joint2020) At Huntington University, each year over 250 students spend an hour participating in a reference appointment with a librarian. How does this process increase their critical thinking skills? This is the question we propose to answer this fall with a new assessment tool created by PALNI staff. In our blitz recording, we share some background about the reasoning behind the creation of this new tool, and share how we plan to use the tool. We'd love to have a discussion with attendees that includes their thoughts on the tool and ways they've been assessing critical thinking.
