Online tutorial: Information Cycle

(23 June 2021)

The latest online tutorial for students to develop their research skills is available at https://community.dur.ac.uk/main.library/online_learning/information_cycle/#/ 

The Information Cycle tutorial examines the creation, modification and distribution of information after an event, the forms of media that students may encounter, and the academic advantages and considerations of each media type.  

The tutorial includes formative learning assessments to test understanding and concludes with a case study in which students assess the academic credibility of information sources generated by the Information Cycle.  

The full list of online tutorials, developed in partnership between University Library & Collections and DCAD, can be found on our Develop your Skills webpages.
