We will share ideas on how curation tools can be used to develop critical thinking skills and information literacy, and how this fits with participants current practice.
We will tell the story of how digital curation has been introduced in our medical course and share some of the lessons we have learned on what works to enable curators.
The final part of the workshop will consider how curation fits conceptually with approaches such as problem-based learning, and some of the common causes of resistance to curation as a method.
