Proposal Title

Using one-shot instruction sessions to teach research strategy to non-traditional graduate students

Presenter Status

Academic Librarian

Description

Non-traditional graduate students typically are pressed for time. Teachers returning for their masters, nurses in a DNP program, small business owners seeking their MBA, all have to find time to study while balancing their careers and families. At the same time, many are re-learning how to study and adapting to new technologies. The one-shot instruction session offers the librarian a chance to not only acclimate the non-traditional student to library database technologies, but also a chance to show how built-in GALILEO tools can be utilized to help the student save time by organizing their research strategically into three phases: the terminology/search string phase, the refinement/limits phase, and the selection/writing phase. This session will include a demonstration of a one-shot that matches GALILEO tools to the research strategy.
