A Study of Student Consultants' Comfort Levels with Research-Related Tasks
Holler Phillips, Carissa M.
Behavioral & Social Sciences Librarian, v30 n2 p85-106 2011
Student consulting is a form of problem-based learning through which students work on strategic issues for organizations. To explore how students perceive their research-related tasks, 15 student consultants were asked to evaluate their comfort levels with seven tasks--adapted from the Association of College and Research Libraries' Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education--in three contexts: class assignments, consulting projects, and future workplaces. The comfort levels revealed by the students have implications for a variety of instructional settings and offer many directions for future studies. (Contains 5 tables.)
