Starting Fall 2018 the SFCC Library collaborated with 7 English 101 faculty members to administer an information literacy (IL) flipped class. The SFCC Library typically teaches "one-shot" a.k.a. one 50 minute library lessons that can cover a range of learning outcomes, from research question development to source evaluation and database search strategies. In an effort to streamline instruction and maximize active learning in class the flipped class project was created to meet the following goals:
In total, 93 Students opted to participate in the flipped class assessment by completing a four quiz module in Canvas, followed by an in-person IL session. The four content areas covered by the quizzes include research as a process, search strategies, evaluation, and citations. The quizzes were created using the ACRL Frameworks, backwards course design, and GenEd IL Learning Outcomes.
The flipped class module was followed by an in-person library session, taught by one of four SFCC Librarian's focused on research question development. At the end of the quarter, students' final research papers were collected and assessed using the SFCC IL Rubric, which is based on the AACU IL Value Rubric.
It should be noted that these findings are mere implications and would require a greater number of participates and data to be statistically significant.
