Information Skills (IS) Teaching for Nurses & Midwives at Dundee University
  • Programme developed gradually and grew organically
  • Redesigned from scratch in 2000
    • Library involved in the development of new curriculum from the start
    • Information skills sessions articulate directly with the competence-based curriculum
    • Sessions delivered using a variety of learning styles
developing a new curriculum
Developing A New Curriculum
  • A new curriculum for 2005
    • Outcomes-driven
    • A greater utilisation of eLearning
  • What should the new IS curriculum look like?
    • It should continue to articulate with ‘new’ curriculum
    • The advent of NHS Scotland eLibrary allows us to introduce the idea of the ‘Lifelong Library’
  • What do our students think about the IS teaching we do?
surveying undergraduate students
Surveying Undergraduate Students
  • Look at the different learning styles used
    • Large-group lectures
    • Orientation visit/tour
    • Demonstration lecture
    • Hands-on workshops in smaller groups
    • Self-test quizzes
    • eLearning using VLE
  • Measure student attitudes to learning using above styles
    • Not too much statistical rigour!
how do librarians like to teach
How Do Librarians Like To Teach?
  • In smaller groups
  • In the Library rather than in a classroom or lecture theatre environment
  • In an ‘anonymous’ fashion
  • Avoiding any form of assessment
  • There is a tendency to want to use VLEs to take out the ‘personal contact’ aspect
how do our students like to learn
How Do Our Students Like To Learn?
  • They don’t like to be bored!
  • In the classroom rather than in a Library
  • They want the Librarian to be visible & accessible
  • Self-paced learning is favoured…
  • …but not in their own time!
  • Avoiding any form of assessment
  • Prefer hands-on for technical subjects
  • They don’t like to read leaflets/training guides
  • They don’t like everything done through a VLE…
  • …but they would like more teaching done through a VLE!
what have we learned
What Have We Learned?
  • Our students have differing expectations of the learning process
  • Librarians try to treat all students similarly
  • Our students are actually quite keen on computers as a medium for learning
  • Librarians sometimes find it hard to teach using computers
  • Our students aren’t always the best judges of what works
  • Librarians aren’t always the best judges of what works
  • Our students want to be able to choose how they learn
  • Librarians tend to concentrate on one approach
is there a solution
Is There A Solution?
  • We have adopted flexible approaches to learning
    • eLearning/VLEs have helped
  • We need to keep talking to students
    • Do we know what they are studying, and when?
  • We are involved in course planning and monitoring
  • We are trying to get Assessment for IS
  • We start with the curriculum, not with the Library
  • We live in the student’s world – we don’t expect them to live in our Library world!
