In this case study, the instructor, the undergraduate teaching assistant, and a library administrator will assess how new media and Web 2.0 technologies transform project-based learning within a unique residential Freshman Interest Group (FIG) learning environment. Learn how the strategic integration of specific Web 2.0 technologies into the FIG, "Hidden History: Documenting Freshman Year," fosters a dynamic partnership between librarians, archivists, and faculty; stimulates higher-order reasoning skills (independent inquiry, critical thinking, problem solving, and expository writing); introduces first-year students to the essential questions and methodologies of specific disciplines and fields of study; and promotes interdisciplinary study and research.
