Abstract

In recent years, libraries have updated online research tutorials in response to the unique learning styles and preferences of Millennial students. Surprisingly, little research has been done to determine if these updated tutorials have actually improved either student learning or satisfaction. This session will report the results of a grant-funded assessment of two online research tutorials (one created in 1999 and the other in 2010) to measure student learning and satisfaction using both quantitative and qualitative methods. Participants will have the opportunity to strategize ways to create and assess their own tutorials that better meet the needs of Millennial students.
