The purpose of this presentation is to share with colleagues an excellent collaborative teaching/learning tool: The Web Page Project. In Library Research Methods, a 3 credit, upper-division undergraduate course cross listed under Environmental Studies, Women's Studies and Instruction & Curricular Studies, students learn to create web pages. The Web Page Project allows them to explore technology, to critically evaluate sources of information, to work in small groups, and to present information to one another.

The nature of this session is practical: it will be a one hour seminar teaching people how to teach students (or any other group) to create web pages. Attendees will create a web page during the session, even if they've never done so before. The basics of html, finding graphics on the Web & incorporating them into web pages, and evaluation of web sources will be covered. Excellent hand-outs will be provided.
