Deakin University Library

Course development support

The Library supports the needs of course leaders and course teams through the provision of a range of specialist services and resources in accordance with Deakin's Course Quality Framework. One attribute of a Deakin graduate is to posses skills in identifying, gathering, evaluating and using information, Library staff are available to work collaboratively with academics and other University staff to develop curriculum and learning activities that support students in acquiring these skills.

Information skills

Information skills increase the capacity of learners to

  • locate, select, manage and work effectively with information
  • recognise, evaluate and use quality academic information resources
  • navigate Library resources, online databases and web-based material

A key goal is to equip learners with the skills to manage and work critically with information - in their studies, careers and professional lives, and as members of society. These skills are central to life-long learning, a core commitment of Deakin University.

Information skills are expected of all Deakin graduates, and are articulated in the University’s Principles of Teaching, Learning and the Student Experience. These skills are part of a set of attributes that graduates will develop throughout their studies and association with Deakin.
