Student - library - lecturer collaboration to foster information literacy

  1. 1. ByZanele Mathe – Senior Librarian andPhilomina Aziakpono - Lecturer
  2. 2.  Response to CPUT e-learning policy requirement Framework for the second cycle of Quality Assurance 2012 – 2017 Generally seeks to respond to the changing needs of our users Increase collaboration with the Faculty & e- learning department
  3. 3.  Develop and test CPUT libraries position in the area of Blackboard as e-learning platform
  4. 4.  3 Librarians - Siviwe Bangani (Communication105) - Nomambulu Dolo (Communication 101) - Nyameka Mila (Consumer Behaviour) 3 Lecturers - Philomina Aziakpono - Ken Barris - Kevin Ncube E-learning coordinator - Sheila Kumalo Library IT technician - Claude Meyer
  5. 5.  Time consuming exercise Technical support Crossing traditional boundaries
  6. 6. From the library side: - Relationships strengthened between the library and the Faculty of Engineering Library invited to the Faculty of engineering sharing of practices, Regularly attend Departmental meetings, Faculty Board meetings Faculty – Librarian collaboration visible at Senate library Committee level Dialogue improved
  7. 7. Why interest in the collaboration? When students have to do the search for information on their own they sometimes encounter difficulties , hence, they use Google to search for materials They copy from only wikipedia or other sources that are not good academic materials The good materials on Google - not be free (students’ complaint – only abstract) Few sessions of library orientation are not enough ◦ Post-library orientation struggles
  8. 8.  Active involvement in all the stages of my students’ information literacy and research essay assignments ◦ Regular discussions with students and librarian ◦ Checked first drafts of assignments ◦ Identified the challenges students faced ◦ Felt the need for a self explanatory guide which will assist the students to search for information more effectively
  9. 9. ◦ Discussions with librarian for more support◦ Initially direct support was given to each student  The demand from students was overwhelming◦ This gave rise to the design of the “How to search for information guide”  Available on Blackboard and N-Drive
  10. 10.  Effective use of library tools instead of just copying from wikipedia because of the support they received from the librarian There was great improvement in the quality of the essays written by students this semester The information they obtained from books and journals helped them to do accurate in-text referencing – author’s surname, date and page numbers Improved understanding of the topics they wrote on, compared to the previous year where many of them copied from only one source Helped to reduce plagiarism
  11. 11.  Need to strengthen this collaboration at CPUT Every lecturer should be encouraged to work closely with the librarian
