MANUSCRIPT: Flipping one-shot library instruction: using Canvas and Pecha Kucha for peer teaching

OBJECTIVE:
This study sought to determine whether a flipped classroom that facilitated peer learning would improve undergraduate health sciences students’ abilities to find, evaluate, and use appropriate evidence for research assignments.
METHODS:
Students completed online modules in a learning management system, with librarians facilitating subsequent student-directed, in-person sessions. Mixed methods assessment was used to evaluate program outcomes.
RESULTS:
Students learned information literacy concepts but did not consistently apply them in research assignments. Faculty interviews revealed strengthened partnerships between librarians and teaching faculty.
CONCLUSION:
This pedagogy shows promise for implementing and evaluating a successful flipped information literacy program
