The Health Sciences Library has developed a set of six Information Management Competencies for all NYMC graduates. All graduates will be able to:
A tutorial series has been developed by the HSL that includes all of the competencies. It is called INFORMATION 101: http://guides.library.nymc.edu/howdoi
Students can choose to complete them as many times as they wish. They will receive an email certificate of completion at the end of each tutorial.
As noted above, for Public Health students these newly acquired skills will then be reinforced and “put to the test” in core courses through specific assignments.
Students will be made aware of the tutorials two ways. 1) Acceptance letters will now include the information and all continuing students will be notified via email. 2) A link will be placed on the LMS on the STUDENT RESOURCES course site. This link will be in the first topic area right below the Academic Integrity Policy and Quiz.
You may also choose to provide a link on your course site. Please contact Lydia Cavieux if you need help posting it.
Thank you for supporting this important initiative.
