English abstract
Letting students take an active part in their education is vital in higher education and there is a lot of research showing that students who are active learners also learn more effectively (eg Biggs & Tang 2011). This poster will illustrate a project where Malmö university library wanted to examine what student activity could mean in the context of information seeking, and where we wanted to involve students more actively in the design of the teaching activities. The project is called ”Students as co-creators of education in seeking, collecting and valuing information – development of methods for higher student participation” and goes on during 2014. We want to see in what ways students can be actively involved in teaching in order to create a deeper understanding within students for their role in their own learning - how can the experiences and knowledge of students contribute to their skills in relation to searching, collecting and valuing information? Within the project we have read articles on user involvement, discussed the literature we have read and we have also visited other organizations that work actively with user participation in order to learn more about different methods that can be used. Inspiration to the methods come from different areas, such as interaction design, city planning and public libraries. In this poster we will tell about our experiences from the project and the different methods we have tested (eg ”idea workshop”), the results we have got and how they influence our teaching about information literacy. The poster will also highlight our experiences from having students in the project group and how this has affected the way we work. Biggs, John B. & Tang, Catherine So-Kum (2011).
