I've been teaching people how to be more effective online researchers for the past decade. In that time, I've taught thousands of people (think students, librarians, professional researchers, and just plain folks) how to find out what they seek through Google (and many other online resources and tools). Just as importantly, I also teach a good deal of when the researcher should switch from online to offline content (and back). This talk covers my experiences in learning how to teach these skills, and what I've learned from direct interactions with my students and from various studies I've run in the lab and with live search traffic. I'll discuss my MOOC (PowerSearchingWithGoogle.com), which has had over 4M students, my live classes, and various publications in paper, book, and video formats. I can tell you which methods work best, and why.
