IFLA World Library and Information Conference in Helsinki, Finland, the next paper is Embedding e-learning into Science and Engineering Graduate Information Literacy Course By Ma Xiaomin (my photo of her on the right).
She described an initiative with a class of 90 students, with a pre test and post test, which were analysed and the course evaluated. The content was based closely on the ACRL standards for science and technology. The speaker presented spider diagrams which revealed which aspects of IL were most problematic for the students (these are in the full paper, linked below). Students also identified what extra support they felt they needed - again the diagram is in the paper, and a number of options were popular, with information literacy courses scoring top.
In one diagram, the workflow of the IL course was portrayed with four key aspects: Information morality, Information competence, Information knowledge and Information awareness
I'm afraid this report is a bit short, as I'm starting to flag a bit! I hope to get my 2nd wind before the final 4 papers in this session.
