History of The Library Research Skills for Land and Food Systems tutorial

The Library Research Skills for Land & Food Systems tutorial has been used by students in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems since 2009.

This tutorial was originally based on the Library Research Skills For Biologists tutorial created by Project Coordinator and Content Developer 2000-2008, Sally Taylor and Content Developer 2003: Katherine KalsbeekSuzan Zagar was the Instructional Design/Programmer.

In the Summer of 2014, The Library Research Skills for Land & Food Systems tutorial was assessed, restructured and rewritted as part of the TLEF Scaffolding and Scaling Up Integrated Experiential Learning Experiences in the Core Series, Land and Food Systems. Undergraduates and faculty in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems were consulted; a card sorting exercise and interviews were used with undergraduates and faculty members were consulted via a survey. The restructuring and rewriting was co-authored by Megan Brown and Katherine Miller. Suzan Zagar was the key technical creator. Thanks to Yvonne Chan for her ongoing support of software challenges.

In 2015, year 2 of the TLEF Scaffolding up, Maggie Faber wrote Choose Your Own Research Adventure in collaboration with Katherine Miller. This section of the tutorial is built using Twine (more information below). Since 2016, Suzan Zagar has made updates.
