Series/Report no.:ACRL Science & Technology Section. STS Program Poster Session. American Library Association Annual Conference, Chicago, Illinois, July 1, 2013
At James Madison University, a chemistry information course (CHEM 481) has been taught for over twenty years. During the past decade, the course has been continually modified to reflect both changes in the skills needed by chemistry majors as well as student performance on course assessments. The course transitioned from a class taught predominantly by chemistry faculty to one that is co-taught with librarians. Each class session and assignment is tied to specific learning outcomes from ACRL information literacy standards for the sciences1 and the SLA/CINF information competencies for chemistry undergraduates2. Course assignments include team based learning activities that allow for greater student interaction. Pre-test and post-test information is gathered on content as well as mode of delivery.
