Abstract

Despite their diverse learning styles and levels of preparation, the students in this qualitative study successfully engaged in a culminating, masters-degree research experience. According to student performance data and exit statements, modifications to traditional instruction and close collaboration between the librarian, instructors, and others were effective with non-traditional students to develop critical information literacy as the foundation of the research process. Technology played an important role in accommodating diverse learning styles and in providing timely feedback to students with regard to scholarly writing, use of publishing conventions, and use of online resources.
