In this six-hour class, which will be offered online in two-hour increments for three successive days students will explore strategies for working more actively with faculty and students to change library learning environments — both physical and virtual — in ways that will more actively engage students in information literacy.
Information literacy is a fairly new term for concepts that have been with librarians for ages: from orientation to bibliographic instruction to library Instruction. Rapidly changing technology, the adoption of the ACRL information literacy standards, and the changing attitudes of college students toward research require librarians to shift from BI to IL, and integrate information literacy concepts and standards into redesigning instruction, rethinking research assignments and creating new kinds of instructional programming. This three-day distance education class offers strategies for working more actively with faculty and students to change library learning environments both physical and virtual in ways that will more actively engage students in the research process.
