A View from the C-Suite: Building Information Literacy Skills for Students in a High-Stakes Program

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The University of Nebraska at Omaha's Executive MBA program is designed specifically for busy professionals who balance a demanding workload, frequent travel, and life outside of the office. Far from your typical first-year student, they are used to managing budgets, people, and time but not research and citations! Come here how we lay a strong foundation for our EMBA program participants, setting the groundwork for basic keyword searches in orientation and building advanced international corporate and industry research skills into the capstone course. We will share our curriculum and tips for managing classroom expectations (for both librarians and the executives).

  • Participants will:
  • Identify possible "high-stakes" student populations at their own institution.
  • Compare current outreach and instruction efforts offered at their own institutions with the alternatives offered in the presentation.
  •  Generate one example of how they might connect with a program with adult learners or high-stakes students at their own institution.
