This week saw the launch of the publicity about LSE100, the new undergraduate course that aims to introduce LSE students to the big questions in the social sciences and provide them a broad range of skills – including information skills.
The course promises to be:
“an innovative new course aimed at introducing first year undergraduates to the fundamental elements of thinking as a social scientist by exploring real problems and real questions, drawing on a range of disciplines across the social sciences. This distinctive course will actively challenge students to analyse questions of current public concern and of intellectual debate from a rigorous social science perspective. ”
I’m really excited to be involved in this course – helping to develop information skills materials embedded in the course.
