Teaching information retrieval using research questions to encourage creativity and assess understanding
Jones, Gareth J.F.
The study of information retrieval has increased in interest and importance with the explosive growth of online information in recent years. Learning about information retrieval within formal courses of study enables users of search engines to use them more knowledgeably and effectively, while providing the starting point for the explorations of new researchers into novel search technologies. The nature of information retrieval as a topic also makes it an ideal subject for developing a range of interdisciplinary and transferrable skills in those studying it.
