ESTABLISHING A COMPREHENSIVE MATRIX TO DEVELOP INFORMATION FLUENCY SKILLS OF MEDICAL STUDENTS FOR CAREER AND LIFELONG LEARNING

R. Saliba

Weill Cornell Medicine (QATAR)
In an effort to revamp the instruction program and incorporate advanced lifelong learning skills, librarians at Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) developed a matrix of Information Fluency (IF) skills that need to be integrated into the newly adopted medical curriculum. They evaluated the old instruction program, identified gaps that need to be addressed, and, based on the new Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) framework, developed a unique matrix that describes the basic, intermediate and advanced skills medical students should acquire by the time they graduate. These skills ranged from finding and evaluating resources, to creating new knowledge and participating in the scholarly community. The following paper describes the planning and implementation of the IF skills into the premedical and medical curricula, the use of the college’s e-learning platform to create and deliver the content, and the challenges faced during the development of this project.
