In the current environment of fake news and internet experts, our students may struggle to locate and use relevant, scholarly information for their studies. The ACU Library Learning and Teaching Framework is here to help.
“Success at law school requires high-level information literacy. The ACU Library learning and teaching sessions are essential to allow students to take control of their information literacy and achieve more informed learning that results in higher marks,” – Professor David Spencer, Faculty of Law and Business.
“This new knowledge was evident in the assessment pieces that the students subsequently submitted, as they had been able to be more critical in selecting information,” – Ms Belinda Koolen, Faculty of Education and Arts.
“Library classes reach every student and establish a strong connection between the library and student achievement,” – Dr Michael Longo, Faculty of Law and Business.
“For the School of Allied Health honours students, the in-class library tutorial and availability of the library staff through individual appointments, enables the students to complete complex searches and to feel confident that they have located and included the necessary information,” - Associate Professor Annette Joosten, Faculty of Health Sciences.
