Training the Trainers: Teaching Clinician Educators to Provide Information Literacy Skills Feedback (Report)

INTRODUCTION “Competency-based education focuses on learner performance in reaching specific objectives goals and objectives in the curriculum” [1]. At the time of this writing, the Stanford University School of Medicine (SOM) was in the process of developing a comprehensive competency-based curriculum with an emphasis on providing students with feedback on their performance. Feedback is defined as “information about previous performance that is used to promote positive and desirable development” [2]. As part of developing the new curriculum, a librarian-medical doctor (MD) team at Lane Medical Library at Stanford University Medical Center created and implemented an interactive, competency-based information literacy (IL) curriculum that included opportunities for students to attain and practice IL skills and to receive feedback on their efforts. The curriculum trains both students and faculty in an attempt to synchronize the IL skills of both groups and to encourage the faculty to act as information literate role models.
