In 2003 two librarians at the University of Wollongong took up the challenge of designing and delivering a crucial subject in a pilot Doctorate of Business Administration program which sought to organise a group of successful business leaders for the task of research. The emphasis was on developing the participants information literacy skills and knowledge in order to help them prepare their research proposal and ultimately conduct their research effectively. The 'Australian Information Literacy Standards' (now known as the 'Australian and New Zealand Information Literacy Framework: principles, standards and practice') proved extremely useful. This is a description of the assessment plan in more detail as well as outlining the role and results evaluation played in this pilot program.
