The Active Scholarship Project describes an experiment in which we create an “eXtensible” university classroom that integrates a number of institutional resources in order to incorporate information literacy into the core curriculum. The project begins with an organizational and technological infrastructure to facilitate customized research workshops, process work, and peer review. In this panel, we describe how students, the instructor, an embedded research librarian, and writing center experts all work together, both virtually and in class, to form a collaborate classroom centered on research.
