Using the analytical tools of observational protocols, and discourse analysis of rhetorical accounts found in student and teacher reaction logs, discussion transcripts and focus group interviews, we situated ourselves among the learners to explore the threshold concept of information literacy in our classroom in Second Life.
- ItemReady or not here we come – perceptions of first year graduate students to library research instruction(Edge Conference. e-Learning: the horizon and beyond, 2010-10) Harkins, Mary Jane; Rodrigues, Denyse; Orlov, StanislavStudents were surveyed on their perceptions of two methods of instruction on using library services related to doing advanced research in graduate education classes provided by academic librarians in partnership with graduate course instructors. The two types of information instruction were: 1) on-line sessions through the use of web-based tutorials; and 2) in class information literacy sessions in first year graduate education classes. The purpose of the study is to identify the benefits and challenges of each approach from the perspective of the graduate students. The findings will help the researchers to: 1) gain an understanding of the benefits and challenges of using existing library services for graduate students; and 2) to improve library services to better meet the needs of both the students and instructors.
