Information skills is teaching for nurses midwives at dundee university l.jpg
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 l.jpg
Developing A New Curriculum Dundee University

  • 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 l.jpg
Surveying Undergraduate Students Dundee University

  • 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 l.jpg
How Do Librarians Like To Teach? Dundee University

  • 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 l.jpg
How Do Our Students Like To Learn? Dundee University

  • 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 l.jpg
What Have We Learned? Dundee University

  • 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 l.jpg
Is There A Solution? Dundee University

  • 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!
