Information Mastery instruction is strategically placed within the medical curriculum to develop students’ information skills for self-directed, lifelong learning and to enhance students’ learning outcomes in courses. Medical Library faculty are active in curriculum development, design and teach sessions, and/or integrate information mastery concepts into coursework and assignments/activities at the point of need. The following are examples of course integrated instructional sessions.
See the course guides for more information.
The Medical Library offers students regular sessions (extracurricular learning experiences) designed to introduce, facilitate the use of various learning resources specific to student learning of various subjects (anatomy resources), clerkships (mobile resources), and preparation for board examinations (review materials and question banks).
Library faculty create and offer individualized sessions or tutorials tailored to each student’s unique needs. These in-person or online one-on-one instructional sessions focus on teaching individual students how to identify specific learning or research resources or tools, design research projects, write research proposals, prepare manuscripts, create a poster, and identify venues for scholarly publications.
