To adopt a “guide on the side” and not the sage-on-the-stage style of delivery, National University of Singapore Libraries (NUS Libraries) reformed library instruction for the undergraduate Nursing programmes. The aims of the reform were to make library instruction for research and information literacy skills scalable; adaptable to different learning preferences; and to better standardise teaching practices. The flexibility of a blended learning approach which combined synchronous and asynchronous delivery of content facilitated the teaching of students from various backgrounds. Asynchronous videos and self-administered quizzes were created and embedded in the online platforms for self-assessment. As this meant that not all teaching must be confined to a single in-person workshop like the past, the teaching of research skills could be scaffolded across the four years of the nursing course. Tools utilised included a combination of online discussion platforms, Microsoft Teams project submissions, and in-person consultations to provide a blended learning approach to in-class instruction for the undergraduate nursing course. The combination of scaffolding and blended learning tools made teaching more accessible to different students with varying learning styles, and enabled the librarians to become better pedagogical mentors, allowing students to be guided to their own conclusions instead of relying on instructors telling them the answers. To ensure successful technological integration, this presentation looks to assess and evaluate the approach used in the Nursing programmes using Mishra and Koehler’s (2006) TPACK framework.
