Information Literacy Skills Development:
2nd & 3rd Year Undergraduate
"95% of courses provide 2nd & 3rd year undergraduate students with an information literacy skills development opportunity led by a librarian".
How we measure thisWe count how many 2nd & 3rd year undergraduate courses we offer, and how many of these have had information literacy skills development sessions run by our librarians.
How often we measure thisThese figures are updated annually, and cover the period 30th June 2021 - 1st July 2022.
CommentsFollowing the Covid restrictions in 2020-21 when courses were delivered entirely online, some courses remained online during 2021-2 and others returned to blocks of campus teaching.
Some courses made the most of the affordances of online delivery and merged course or campus cohorts to limit repeated content delivery.
As a result of fewer requested opportunities for information literacy teaching within the curriculum we have seen an increase in individual Book a Librarian appointments, with the new online offer proving popular and being continued as an option alongside face-to-face appointments.
Subject Librarians have also responded by creating asynchronous learning materials, e.g. videos and Canvas activities.
