  • Good morning, I would like to tell you about the research informed teaching award work I have been engaged in with colleagues from the faculty of technology. The project has worked to develop online workshops……and I shall expand on that as we go along. Unfortunately, Lucy and Mike are unable to be with us today , so you will be getting a Librarian’s perspective on this. If you wonder about the image of the mortar board and scroll it is there to represent the graduate nature of the required content evaluation skills.
  • Transcript

    • 1. Using online workshops to enhance student content evaluation skills for VLE learning communities De Montfort University RITA project 2008 – 2009 Mike Leigh, Lucy Mathers & Kaye Towlson
    • 2. Session coverage
      • Background
      • Methodology
      • Results
      • Connections
      • Future Applications
    • 3. Background
      • Cross faculty/department RITA bid
      • Build on work of previous RITA funded project by Mike Leigh and Lucy Mathers
        • revealed a significant gap between information evaluation skills acknowledged by students and those manifest in work.
      • Wanted to develop an evaluative framework and publish on VLE for use when posting selected subject materials.
    • 4. Methodology: Strand 1 Lectures and Labs
      • Embedded in curriculum.
        • 2 different modules
      • Similar assessment task
        • group or individual wiki
        • Post material, mainly from the internet to aid understanding of a negotiated topic.
        • Evaluate material posted.
      • Group or peer evaluation of material
        • article review
    • 5. Methodology Strand 1 Lectures and Labs
      • Session re: information evaluation
        • “ Skill for life”, real life examples, 5W’s, 4C’s
      • Lab sessions run to enable the creation and development of wikis
      • Lab sessions run to enable peer evaluation of articles followed by feedback
    • 6. Development of ISEM
      • Anecdotal feedback reveals improvement in quality of materials posted
      • Used criteria specified in info evaluation sessions (5 W’s) to develop Information Source Evaluation Matrix (ISEM)
      • Needed to test ISEM
    • 7. Methodology Strand 2: UG and PG Workshops
      • Self-assessment of info evaluation skills (Likert Scale) “before and after”
      • Presentation/ refresher of the “5 Ws”
      • Intro to the ISEM
      • Application of ISEM to subject specific material
      • Revised self-assessment
      • Comments on ISEM application
    • 8. Workshop Results 1 UG and PG ISEM Feedback
      • Use of the ISEM positively received by UGs and PGs
      • All engaged with the matrix, its purpose and application
      • Recognition of importance of relevance and reliability
      • Some criteria valued more than others
    • 9. Workshop results 2 Suggestions for ISEM improvement
      • All suggestions were positive
      • Some suggested a variation in points allocation to reflect importance of individual criteria
      • Use of colour coding
      • Inclusion of space for annotations, especially useful for future comparison
      • Inclusion of space for citation
    • 10. Connections
      • With existing work:
        • Learner developed wiki of sources for module
        • UCPD: Researching business information
      • Working with different communities
        • Academics and students from Faculty of Technology
      • Doing library stuff but not as “The Library”…student engagement
      • Confirmations….smugness not allowed
    • 11. Project Results… so far
      • Project aim : To develop an evaluative framework, publish on VLE for use when posting selected subject materials.
      • ISEM is offered as the pilot framework
      • Self-assessment Likert Scale to be adjusted in the light of workshops
      • Clear potential for developing information evaluation skills as matrix clearly raises awareness and forces application
    • 12. Future Applications
      • Develop online tools, make available via VLE
        • Offer as a generic tool?
      • Scope for future research:
        • Application and implication of ISEM in different subject areas and at different levels
        • May identify key criteria for specific subject areas
