Presentation Description

In this session, attendees will learn about the importance of the transition or leveling course for students prior to entering graduate studies. Many students seek graduate study years after their last academic degree and, more often than not, as a way to initiate a career change. Their information literacy skills are, however, out-of-date. The transition course, as will be shown, presents an opportunity to remediate library and writing skills; this can lead to increased success in a graduate program.
