    1. 1. Integrating the Online BiblioBoutsGame to Teach Information Literacy in Academic Classes Chris Leeder, Victor Rosenberg, Chuck Severance School of Information University of Michigan
    2. 2. Topics 1. The BiblioBouts Game 2. BiblioBouts Concepts and Issues 3. Integration into LMSs
    3. 3. BiblioBouts Learning Objectives• Using professional tools to find sources on a topic  Library database portal  Library databases  Zotero for source management• Evaluating sources using an established set of credibility and relevance criteria• Formulating a research paper topic• Choosing the best sources for a bibliography on their topic
    4. 4. Game Structure• Students compete against each other to earn points and badges and advance through levels• Students learn from their peers while practicing skills• The game consists of three mini-games or bouts• Each bout gives students practice with a specific subset of information literacy skills within the overall research process• Game play results in a bibliography of high-quality sources for student papers or projects
    5. 5. Pre-Game Class ActivitySearch the web and library databases, sources in Zotero
    6. 6. Closer BoutChoose the best sources from your search results
    7. 7. Tagging & Rating BoutEvaluate opponents’ sources for credibility and relevance
    8. 8. Best Bibliography BoutFrom all sources, choose the best for your paper topic
    9. 9. Post-Game LibraryAccess everyone’s sources to write your paper
    10. 10. Instructor EvaluationView students’ progress
    11. 11. Benefits• Realize that library-portal databases yield sources that are qualitatively better than Google, Wikipedia, and the web• Practice using a step-by-step approach to library research and learn a methodology for evaluating sources• Exposure to more diverse sources than working alone• Put more effort into reading, scrutinizing, and comparing sources• Reduce procrastination
    12. 12. Objectives of BiblioBouts• Getting students to use more and better sources.• Teaching research methodology• Do more sources mean better research?• Background of the project – Origins in bibliographic instruction – Bibliographic Instruction is labor intensive and inefficient. – Using older students to mentor younger ones. – The game is used to make bibliographic instruction scalable.
    13. 13. Objectives of the Project• Getting students to use sources beyond Google and Wikipedia• Most undergraduates are unaware of library resources• Optimal use of library resources requires information literate students• Teaching students to use reference management software (Zotero)• Teaching students to critically evaluate sources in terms of relevance and credibility.
    14. 14. Motivations for students• Competition, Local and Beyond• Prizes: Cash or Badges• Financial incentives• Course Credit• Course requirement
    15. 15. Major Research Findings• Students learned new skills – Student confidence increased.• Students used new resources• They felt more confident about research skills.• They may have produced better papers. – (We have some anecdotal evidence.)• They may have used better resources• Learned to consider credibility and relevance• Learned to use Zotero: creating bibliographies and formatting citations.
    16. 16. Integrating BiblioBouts using IMSLTI• We are developing an IMS Learning Tools Interoperability integration to plug BiblioBouts into Learning Tools Interoperability – Auto-creation of Instructor and Student Accounts – Auto-creation of the games – Auto-invite of students into games – One-click launch, no separate account or password
