Abstract [en]

Media and information literacy is of increasing importance and viewed as a necessary life skill for all ages, social groups and professional sectors of contemporary digital society, hence also affecting the approaches and strategies for higher education. This paper illustrates the background and process of building a successful library-faculty partnership initiated as a quality improvement measure for a bachelor's program in business administration at University West, Sweden. According to the Higher Education Act, Swedish higher education should rest on scientific or artistic basis and on proven experience, research and development. The process started in 2012 as a response to criticism from the Swedish Authority for Higher Education regarding learning outcomes focused on students' skills and abilities to seek, collect, evaluate and critically interpret relevant information within the field of business administration. The quality improvement process entitled "A Scientific Wave" aims at supporting student development during the study period to develop and strengthen skills in critical and analytical approaches, written and oral presentation, and media and information literacy skills to provide the prerequisites for achieving the learning outcomes for a bachelor's degree in business administration. The Scientific Wave includes several different quality aspects and applies a holistic approach to improve the quality and progression of knowledge throughout all courses of the program. In addition, work integrated learning (WIL) is applied as an educational and pedagogic model throughout the program to enhance the link between work life and learning, theory and practice. This paper will focus on how to build a successful library-faculty collaboration to improve students' media and information literacy skills. Earlier research states that successful integration of media and information literacy in higher education should be based on close collaboration between librarians and discipline faculty, strategic anchoring and visualization in curricula, syllabi, learning outcomes and examinations, and developed in line with the mission of the university. The Scientific Wave is here viewed as a co-creative, continuous framework based on the separate but complementary skills of librarians and faculty to provide students with tools for critical and creative thinking, research skills as well as lifelong learning in today's digital society.

Abstract [en]

How librarians and teachers in higher education collaborate in their workplace and how inter-professional learning is arranged for and experienced are understudied. This study will present a case where a librarian and a teacher held continuous meetings. The purpose of the case study is to demonstrate and emphasize the value of interprofessional learning as work integrated learning and suggest models for competence development and educational development for students regarding information seeking in higher education. The case includes three three-hour meetings between a librarian and a teacher where conversations and hands-on activities initially focused on databases, search tools and techniques for improved search quality. Individual experiences were documented as separate texts of reflections from a unique professional point of view. Every reflection brought on new questions and ideas that were discussed during the following meeting. The comprehensive documentation were analyzed and used for modelling courses for students' progression in information literacy. The courses were then implemented and evaluated on basic and advanced levels. Furthermore, experiences were used for modelling competence development in a University setting. Interprofessional learning arose while combining role specific practice and knowledge between a librarian and a teacher during their conversations. The emergent learning drove model creation that benefitted students, teachers, researchers and librarians. This study recommends the university management to support interprofessional encounters at work. Continuous meetings at Universities between librarians and teachers are rare and, thus, not often reflected upon or systematically documented and analyzed. Value is found in course development for students and professional development for librarians, teachers and researchers.

Abstract [sv]

Högskolan Västs bibliotek har av högskolans ledning fått ett utökat uppdrag som innebär att en av bibliotekets grupperingar, Team forskarstöd, ska förse ledningen med bibliometriskt underlag inför de kontinuerliga utvärderingarna av de vitala forskningsmiljöerna vid lärosätet. Detta arbete är fortfarande i inledningsskedet och tanken är att genom denna studie undersöka hur Team Forskarstöd och delar av ledningsgruppen på Högskolan Västs bibliotek ser på detta nya uppdrag.

Abstract [sv]

Biblioteket på Högskolan Väst har en särskilt stödfunktion som kallas Forskarstöd. Det handlar om en grupp bibliotekarier som bland annat bistår forskarna i fråga om publiceringsstrategier, bibliometri, informationssökning och tillgängliggörande av forskningspublikationer i DiVA (Digitalt Vetenskapligt Arkiv). Tjänsten används frekvent och på olika sätt av olika forskare utifrån deras behov. Vårt case bygger på tre möten mellan bibliotekarie och forskare samt efterföljande individuella reflektionstexter. I denna presentation vill vi berätta om vinsterna med att betrakta samtalen mellan forskare och bibliotekarie genom perspektiven interprofessionellt lärande och arbetsintegrerat lärande. Vi belyser dessa vinster genom våra erfarenheter att ha kontinuerliga träffar på tu man hand med fokus på informationssökning och databaser.

Mötet mellan bibliotekarie och forskare präglas av att var och en bär med sig sin specifika professionella praktik in i mötet. I mötet och i det samtal som då sker kan båda bli varandras lärare likväl som varandras studenter. Den dubbla situationen av att vara bärare av båda roller samtidigt behöver hanteras av de aktörer som interagerar med varandra i situationen. Hur det mötet går till, drivs och fylls med ett innehåll samskapas av de som ingår i mötet. I vårt fall belyser vi och problematiserar denna situation utifrån våra egna erfarenheter i vårt eget arbete på vår arbetsplats. Avslutningsvis rekommenderar vi att skapa fortsatta villkor för dessa typer av interprofessionella möten på arbetsplatsen för att stödja arbetsintegrerat lärande i verksamheten för verksamheten.
