Using your byte...IL skills for dental health students

Using your byte: a collaborative approach to evaluating improvement in information literacy skills using Web 2.0 technologies for dental and oral health students: a pilot study by Nicola Foxlee, and Pauline Ford at University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. The Liaison Librarian and first year Course Coordinators investigated ways to evaluate the information literacy skills of first year dental and oral health students.Instruction tailored to a specific assignment task was supported by an electronic assignment guide. Course tools on Blackboard, a virtual learning environment were trialled to reinforce the face-to-face instruction, deliver the e-guide, and to enable small group collaborative activity and evaluation of skills improvement.

Awful pun, pity there isnt more detail to get my teeth into, but an interesting project, which would be interesting to follow up and might have been a candidate for the book.
