Information Literacy Stipends 2006-2007

Dean Charles Kratz announced the names of the recipients of the two Information Literacy Stipends granted by the Weinberg Memorial Library to help faculty integrate student learning outcomes on information literacy in their courses. This is the third year that the Weinberg Memorial Library has awarded these stipends.

Occupational Therapy 493: Research Methods in Occupational Therapy

This information literacy project will compare the content of the senior OT 493 Research Methods in Occupational Therapy (OT) to the information literacy standards of the Accreditation Council for OT Education (ACOTE) and the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education of the ACRL. Outcome measures to assess students’ level of information literacy to help determine their ability to competently complete a research proposal will be designed. Graduated learning activities to provide students with opportunities to develop and refine the core information literacy competencies needed to successfully complete their graduate research projects and scholarly theses will be developed.
