A case for multimodal training of electronic databases at a higher education institution

E.M. Stoffberg, A.S. Blignaut


This paper analyses and evaluates the current institutional Information Literacy Training Programme (ILTP) at the Tshwane University of Technology. The Library and Information Services re-examines its ILTPs from previously merged Technikons in terms of the background and conditions as well as the design and approval of a new programme. This baseline evaluation examines the development of a training programme for scholars using electronic databases in the contact on-campus delivery mode and to the proposed multimodal training approach. We recommend the content, format, assessment approaches and delivery mode for the ILTP.
