MAC Messages Submission: 2014 MAC Research and Assessment Grant Report

In 2014 the MAC Research & Assessment Committee awarded a grant of $1,000 to support a pilot project, “A Booster Shot for Health Science Librarianship: Using Canvas and PechaKucha to Flip the Library Classroom.” The researchers tested whether a flipped information literacy program, that featured peer-learning and peer-assessment, could improve upper-level undergraduate health science students’ abilities to find and select appropriate evidence for research assignments. The project is now completed and final results will be shared at the upcoming MAC/MLA Annual Meeting in Asheville, NC on Oct. 19th, 2015.

 A report on the outcomes of the grant is available here.
