Abstract

© 2018, Springer International Publishing AG. Preparing students for their masters’ dissertations requires understanding their abilities, needs and academic goals. This means faculty should provide multiple opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate information seeking skills and have opportunities to apply these skills to research practices. To contextualize challenges advisors face, this paper will describe methods lecturers can use to support masters level dissertation research in an interdisciplinary department. The challenges of teaching information literacy in a diverse academic environment will also be discussed. Evidence and descriptions will be empirical, but will shed light on the obstacles teaching staff may face when supporting student acquisition of information literacy skills at the post graduate level.
