Title:Evaluation of self-directed technology skills learning at the iSchool

Evaluation
Abstract:Addressing the disparate information technology literacy levels of incoming Masters’ students while promoting self-directed learning, prompted the iSchool at UBC to design and implement a multimodal, self-directed, and voluntary information technology literacy program called Technology in the Core. In this paper, we report on the design and testing of an evaluation framework to determine the effectivity of this program. We consider the evaluation framework we have developed can be adopted by other iSchools interested in establishing a minimum baseline of information technology literacy skills and knowledge while fostering self-directed and life-long learning attitudes and behaviours among their students.
