Information literacy and health science: developing a comprehensive and sustainable model
In 1997 staff at Central Queensland University (CQU) created a model to deliver generic skills, specifically information literacy and communication skills, to students enrolled in a core unit of the Bachelor of Health degree. The unit was offered in distance mode, and across three campuses using videoconferencing. The teaching team included three academic staff, the Faculty Liaison Librarian and a lecturer from the Communications Learning Centre. Evaluation of the unit, including student surveys and informal observations on the impact of the student queries on the reference desk and the offcampus library service, indicate that the project was very successful in terms of enabling quality learning outcomes for all students.
