Do students confuse a single Google search with research? How do students research? Is there a “right” way? What are their research strengths? What are our instructional challenges? How can we best teach the inquiry process? Is there a “best” way? In this edWebinar, Michelle Luhtala and guest Tasha Bergergson-Michelson, Instructional and Programming Librarian at Castalleja School in Palo Alto, CA and former Search Educator at Google (2010–13), will answer these essential questions. Tasha will also share her “obsession with search.” There will be time for questions after the presentation. All librarians are invited to attend this live, interactive session.
