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.
