Changing the Scholarly Sources Landscape with Geomorphology Undergraduate Students
Blackburn, Heidi; Dere, Ashlee
Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, n83 Win 2016
Science is a core discipline in academia yet the focus of most undergraduate technical writing is generally on the data and results, not the literature review. The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) librarian and a new geology professor at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) collaborated to develop an information literacy session for students in a geomorphology class. Here we outline the background of the campus STEM initiatives and the assignment as well as the library instruction activity, learning outcomes, and assessment components. The activity improved student use of scholarly sources and we provide suggested activity modifications for future teaching and assessment efforts.
