I just learned last night that a poster proposal I put together with a couple of colleagues, Information Literacy Instruction in BlueJeans, was accepted for presentation at ACRL 2015. This poster grew out of the “Nursing Journal Club Live!” continuing education course I am involved in with Charlotte Sortedahl (nursing faculty), Stephanie Wical (library colleague), and Jennifer Benike (UWEC Continuing Education). BlueJeans is a new web conferencing software package that UWEC has subscribed to, and this poster will focus on the benefits and challenges of using this tool to provide instruction to nurses currently in practice. The course is designed as a journal club for nurses, and will discuss four research articles with the researchers who published them. In addition, my library colleague and I will teach a one-hour session on how to find the best research to support evidence-based practice.
If you will be attending ACRL 2015, be sure to stop by and say “Hi!”
