Using High-Level Embedded Librarianship To Enhance Student Learning and Reduce Academic Anxiety In An Online Leadership Course
High-level embedded librarianship was integrated into an introductory leadership course to provide undergraduate students from the university’s global online campus high-touch access to librarian services through a learning management platform, including active librarian presence as well as the collaborative design and librarian-led facilitation of an online discussion focused on research and academic writing. Survey results and student feedback indicated increased student engagement and reduced academic anxiety. This presentation will provide an overview of embedded librarianship, the activities used in an online leadership course, its strategic use, and the benefits of using a collaborative approach as well as interactive participant dialogue.
