Taking Inspiration from Alumni: Evidence-based and Authentic Information Literacy Instruction

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Librarians from four universities in Utah sought to modify instruction to baccalaureate nursing students based on information needs and behaviors of their recent nursing alumni. We surveyed hundreds of alumni across the state about topics related to information environment, information access, and specific resources used. We’re now using the evidence collected to inform our teaching. This session will describe our survey process, results, and plans for implementation of recommendations for authentic information literacy instruction. In addition, we will address how our results fit with current information literacy standards for nursing. We will suggest future directions for authentic nursing information literacy instruction and ways this research can be adapted to other disciplines.

Part of this session will be dedicated to a discussion with the group about improving information literacy instruction based on evidence. We will open up the conversation about the challenges and benefits of evidence-based library instruction. We’ll also discuss student-centered learning and discipline-specific literacy instruction and ways to implement them at your library.
