Library and information services for staff: Teaching information searching to students

Request a training session for your course

The library organises training concerning information searching at various stages in Haaga-Helia students' studies. Some degree programmes contain training on information searching, but a teacher may request the library to organise teaching on the subject for any course. The training can be tailored to suit the teacher's wishes and course tasks.

The library's information specialists and librarian are responsible for teaching information searching. When reserving a session for training in information searching, it is good to discuss the following:

  • The date of the training. Contact the information specialist at your unit in good time to ensure that the training session can be arranged when convenient for you.
  • The aims of the training
  • The time available
  • The task to be given to the students. Information search training best supports the aims of the study unit if the students are given a task relating to the subject of their study unit, in which they apply what they've learnt during the information search session.
  • Size of the group.
  • Language of instruction.
  • Where the training will take place. Reserve a classroom with the necessary equipment so that the students can practise searching information.
