  3. 3. In-Person Workshop<br />Outcomes: Identify and apply criteria to critically evaluate websites<br />Logistics<br />Format – Think/Pair/Share<br />Factors that led to the change<br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />
  4. 4. Tutorial Design<br />Software <br />Articulate Presenter (PowerPoint plug-in)<br />Quia<br />Time – about 70 hours to design tutorial<br />Included practice activities for students to self-assess their learning<br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />
  5. 5. Tutorial<br /> The features of the tutorial we would like to point out today:<br />Tutorial layout<br />Organization of content<br />Help<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />
  6. 6. Assessment<br />Students required to complete assessment exercises at the end of the tutorial to receive credit<br />Librarian provided individual feedback to students via e-mail based on their responses to assessment questions<br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />
  7. 7. Assessment<br />Questions asked students to:<br />Recall criteria (and definitions) used to critically evaluate online health information<br />Evaluate a web site about teen suicide using each criterion<br />Create a search strategy they would use to find statistics about smoking and incidence of lung cancer<br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />
  8. 8. Assessment<br />How did students do?<br />95% of students were able to correctly recall evaluative criteria and definitions<br />75% were able to create a sound search strategy to find health statistics after the tutorial<br />Evaluate a web site about using each criterion<br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />
  9. 9. Results – Evaluation <br />(based on the results of 13 out of 40 responses)<br />Time spent on tutorial<br />11-35 minutes (reported by Quia, which only tracks time once the “quiz” is started)<br />11-60 minutes (reported by students)<br />Useful topics covered in tutorial<br />How to find health statistics – 40% <br />Criteria to evaluate online health information – 33%<br />Tools for citing resources – 27%<br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />
  10. 10. Results – Evaluation<br />(based on the results of 13 out of 40 responses)<br />Attachments downloaded by students<br />Criteria for evaluating web sites – 48%<br />RefWorks Quick Start Guide – 38%<br />Received the attachments from TA – 10% <br />Was the tutorial worth your time?<br />Yes – 100%<br />No – 0% <br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />
  11. 11. Results - Evaluation<br />(based on the results of 13 out of 40 responses)<br />Students liked:<br />“it was very interactive (rather than just a typical read-only tutorial)”<br />“I was able to look at and compare real [web site] examples for myself”<br />“activities were helpful – being able to look over the sites and then answer the quiz questions was a good way of ensuring that I was looking at the appropriate aspects of each site”<br />“the quizzes” (i.e. practice activities)<br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />
  12. 12. Results - Evaluation<br />Improvements recommended by students:<br />“more examples of bad web sites”<br />“narration”<br />“music”<br />“more quizzes/website activities”<br />“make it available to other health-field bound students”<br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />
  13. 13. In-Person vs. Online<br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />
  14. 14. Future Improvements<br />Incorporate “practice exercises” and formative assessment if possible <br />e.g. “Practice exercises” at the end of any section in the Bioengineering 1 tutorial<br />Add audio narration and videos of search strategies to accommodate additional learning styles<br />e.g. “movies” in Sections 3 and 4 of the Bioengineering 1 tutorial<br />Add more examples, including “non-examples”<br />Turnbow & Matlin<br />MLGSCA Technology Symposium, March 6, 2009<br />
