Developing Online Information Literacy Tools for a Graduate Nursing Program

Wednesday, March 28 | 8:30AM–9:15AM ET | Room 553
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
In the fall of 2017, the University of Hartford began offering a completely online graduate nursing program. Due to the specialized nature of research in the health sciences, the graduate nursing students have traditionally relied on the library to provide in-depth instruction on research theory and have used the library's resources. To meet the needs of our online students, we have created a suite of information literacy tools for two specific nursing courses. This presentation will cover the planning, design, implementation, and assessment of three tool types: interactive tutorials, targeted screencasts, and course-related subject guides.

Outcomes: Learn how to work collaboratively to create online information literacy tools at your institution * Better understand the design process involved in the creation of online information literacy tools * Understand how to implement scaled instruction into the design of online information literacy tools
