1:45-2:15 Like peanut butter and chocolate: Problem-based learning and the ACRL Framework in medical education

Problem-based learning (PBL) offers a rich context for teaching using the Framework. This pairing requires planning in order to interprofessionally infuse faculty knowledge content with information literacy expertise.  Explore the foundations of PBLs and a method to directly teach practical and efficient research strategies while also addressing evaluative critical thinking processes. 

2:15-2:45 CANCELED: EnviRN-Evidence: Enhancing Nurse Capacity to Search for Environmental Health Evidence 

This session will discuss the creation of a new "tool for the trail" for nurses, nursing & allied health students, faculty and librarians. The Institute of Medicine notes that all nurses should integrate environmental health into their education, practice, and research, yet environmental health is poorly incorporated into nursing curriculum. In an effort to address this disparity, an interprofessional team ( a librarian, professor, recently graduated practicing nurse, and an instructional designer) from the University of San Francisco developed EnviRN-Evidence. EnviRN-Evidence, created with funding from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, is a publicly available, online tutorial that introduces users to the relationship between environmental exposures and health outcomes, and to the National Library of Medicine's environmental health resources. Attendees to this session will be able to utilize the EnviRN-Evidence tutorial in their own institutions, and the presenter will describe tools used and lessons learned during the creation of EnviRN-Evidence.
