The assignments in INFO 200 are meant to build on student knowledge of a community’s information behavior, understanding of peer-reviewed research articles and community-created resources related to the group, and a synthesis of our course content with findings about the community. Blogging and the other major assignments should provide content and insights for the successful completion of the research paper. Content can be remixed and re-used.
Here is an example from a previous student whose work focused on the DIY and STEAM makers as an information community illustrating the path from blogging, through the assignments, to a successful paper.
Thanks to SJSU student Dani Musick for providing these assignments!
