Interactive learning addressing library skills and the research process were embedded into all sections of a university course via the online learning management system, reaching a student population of over 200 students each semester. In this session, attendees will learn what library instructional learning objects and activities were collaboratively developed and how they were created, collected and assessed.

After implementation, an analysis of the efficacy of the learning objects was undertaken. Which learning objects and activities were most effective? What were the outcomes and what was learned from the assessment process? Details of the investigation into whether these modules can contribute to student success and an overview of the way in which assessment can impact revision of such materials will be shared with the audience.

This presentation will give attendees an opportunity to discuss their own experiences with the creation and assessment of library learning objects and give the presenters a platform to report on the creation and assessment of their modules. We will examine whether this approach provides an advantage to teaching the research process. In addition, this presentation will contribute to the body of library literature about assessment as we engage our audience in thinking through how to enhance and assess their own library instructional content.

Ultimately, did the outcomes successfully contribute to the student research process and their research papers?
