Thursday, 21 March, 2019 - 12:30 to 14:00

Speakers:  Victoria Caplan & other librarians (LIB), Prof. Melody Chao (MGMT),
                  Dr. Emily Tsang (CHEM), & Prof. Fei Sun (CBME)

Format:  Seminar

Seminar Overview:

UGs often struggle to learn how to conduct academic research and convey results, which is an important outcome of university education. In this session, HKUST librarians and faculty members shared on how they collaborated in several courses to develop students’ information competency over the past few years, under UGC’s Additional Funding for Teaching and Learning. Also shared on what they did, what the students accomplished, and what all of us learned. After this session, participants should be informed and inspired by the people at HKUST and beyond to consider and use faculty-librarian partnerships to enhance student learning and research.
