QEP GIST Program - November, 2014 update: QEP Workshop


The success of NC Wesleyan's QEP hinges on your participation. This program will attempt to enhance existing academic programs with a focus on student learning through coursework. The QEP on information literacy seeks to:

Enhance student learning by creating coursework opportunities that change information-seeking and use behaviors while taking GIST courses in the major sequence.

Change how students perceive research. Students generally think of research work as a linear task. We want them to understand that research is a recursive process that often involves topic definition, critical evaluation, analysis, organization, and sophisticated documentation skills (source citation).

 Promote increased student learning by providing faculty and staff with training opportunities that uses current best practices and professional literature to influence course design, research assignment design that emphasizes information literacy - all of which reach students through lecture, coursework, and a variety of academic support.

This LibGuide was originally written and used by James Parrigin, MLS.  In spring 2011 Amy Brake became the QEP Director and has maintained and edited this guide for training purposes.
