Pushing Library Information to First-Year Students: An Exploratory Study of Faculty/Library Collaboration
Dobozy, Eva; Gross, Julia
Australian Academic & Research Libraries, v41 n2 p90-99 Jun 2010
The authors contend that better information literacy and library skills development practice is needed for students entering university. This paper presents a case study of how a teacher education (TE) lecturer and a faculty librarian collaborated in an Australian university to provide information literacy practice. A mutual interest in technology-enhanced learning and teaching through podcasting media was the catalyst for the collaboration. A semester-long trial was conducted in which library pod/vodcasts were provided to first-year teacher education students. This paper explores this student learning project and proposes a prototype for further media-related collaboration between academic and library staff. (Contains 3 figures and 2 tables.)
