Promoting Student Success in Undergraduate Scholarship using Information Literacy and New Media Technology Across Disciplines
The Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) program at CSU Dominguez Hills primarily serves returning and non-traditional students. IDS 490, the Senior Seminar in IDS and Labor Studies is presently a class that provides students with an opportunity to do research in their areas of concentration, and to redefine how they have previously thought about information and research as they develop the capabilities of information literacy. This project seeks to transform IDS 490 through the development of online tutorials for information literacy to assist students in their efforts to do research, as well as to develop skills in new media technology (PowerPoint, webpage, and iMovie-type presentation formats).

Faculty will work with staff in Academic Technology and the Library to create and customize these tutorials and assessment tools for the Senior Seminar in Interdisciplinary Studies and Labor Studies, and embed them in Blackboard pages for the class. We are interested in developing our capability to provide students more quality interaction with faculty, while delivering upper-division academic research and presentation skills in a cost effective manner. This project provides a basis for our campus to develop important models of efficiency in online tutorials for use in both face-to-face classes as well as in distance learning. It also maps out a method for making our students better acquainted with new media technology to present their work in public forums, furthering their academic and professional careers.
