Students will acquire the knowledge, skills and abilities to succeed in college-level research by identifying, evaluating and using diverse information sources from the internet and library databases. This course follows the research process with a health science focus that includes developing topics and thesis statements, creating search strategies and critically evaluating and ethically citing sources. These research and critical thinking skills are crucial for success, not only in college, but also in the health science workplace. This six-module online course teaches students how to apply information literacy competencies to the research process. Each module addresses one of the six Frames identified by the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (ACRL, 2015) which employs the concepts of meta-literacy, metacognition and threshold concepts. Each frame is a broad concept to assist learning and embracing new understandings about information, research and scholarship across disciplines.
