Resources for Librarians
This project found those international students' undergraduate experiences prior to arrival in the UK to pursue postgraduate courses has a significant effect on their expectations and academic performance. Frequently these expectations and experiences are likely to put them at a disadvantage in relation to achieving on their courses but, more worryingly, are liable to open them up to charges of plagiarism and other forms of academic malpractice.
This part of the website is intended to be used by Librarians and others who are interested in teaching students, especially international post graduate students, in the area of information literacy. On this part of the project web site, you will find a variety of multimedia based resources. The intention is that librarians and information literacy staff can not only use them as a resource for themselves but also for their students. The intention was that they could be used in the classroom / workshop context as not only a source of information, but also a basis for discussion. You will find two sections to this part of the web site. First there are long multimedia films available that are especially suited to supporting classroom activity or for more detailed explanations and then there are short voice over clips relating to a number of different information literacy issues that are useful to point students to after such sessions.
