New: Research coherence; Learning design; thesis topics; Open Science; Data literacy

A few recent articles, a blog post and a thesis.
- Sisamaki, E. (2020). The Advising Dimension of Information Literacy: Helping Students Decide on a Thesis Topic. (Masters thesis, Tampere University of Applied Sciences). (the research was undertaken in Greece)
- Hart, E. & Annear, C. (2020). Research Coherence: A Framework for Successful Student Research. College Teaching. [early online publication]. (priced) "This article develops a coherence framework to address problems students face throughout the research and writing process. This framework joins literature on coherence techniques and effective pedagogies including guided research, peer modeling, checkpoints, and reflection. The article presents pedagogical recommendations for establishing coherence in student research and writing projects."
- Pagowsky, N. (2020). Leaving the one-shot through a feminist approach to designing an instruction program. (a blog post with text and slides from a talk she gave at NELIG, April 15, 2020).

(Not new, but new-to-me)
- Lopes, C., da Luz Antunes, M. & Sanches, T. (2019). Information Literacy and Open Science: Before and After the New ACRL Framework. European Conference on Information Literacy 2018 proceedings.
- Dai, Y. (2019). How many ways can we teach data literacy? IASSIST Quarterly, 43(4), 1-11. (open access) "(1) We initiated the yearlong series of events titled ‘Lying with Data’, inviting faculty across disciplines to each address one core data literacy question that students of data science may elude. (2) We offered workshops and in-class instruction that are up-to-date with the latest technology and that fit with the curriculum. (3) We created online casebooks on various topics in the data lifecycle, tackling user needs at different levels."
