Abstract
A new learning unit on scholarly communication topics was developed for a first-year undergraduate information literacy tutorial at an academic library serving two campuses of the University of Hawaii System. The author recruited participants through campus advertisements and compensated them for their time. The unit design featured a blended learning environment using a flipped-classroom instructional strategy. Students viewed three modules via an online learning management system before a planned face-to-face workshop session to apply learned concepts in a computer-based classroom. Modules consisted of multimedia learning objects presented in a timeline format. A pretest, posttest, and exit survey assessed learning and satisfaction. Results showed student comprehension of online content and general satisfaction with the structure and delivery of modules but participants did not attend the planned session. Recommendations from this study are made to academic librarians and other investigators seeking to adopt a similar approach to these topics.
