Presentation Description

This presentation will review examples of the problem-based learning design in Information Literacy, and will show how this concept can be utilized to blend with faculty course content to teach information fluency within the science & engineering curricula. Use of this approach, in partnership with teaching faculty in the College of Engineering and the College of Science, in entry level Biomedical Engineering and upper division Ecology classes at the Georgia Institute of Technology, will be discussed. The Georgia Tech Library is a vital part of the process as students learn while addressing non-structured problems drawn from the medical and environmental issues of the day.
