Information Literacy is being actively discussed in educational circles as important for students across majors and disciplines. In order to develop this literacy in our students, we need to better understand it ourselves, and the ways in which information literacy has an authentic place in the curriculum.
Come to this workshop, facilitated by Kira Appel, Director, Reference and Instruction and Paul Abruzzo, Instructional Services Librarian to better understand what information literacy means and how to incorporate the teaching of this skill into course design and assignments. We'll launch into some exercises that will help your students become more thorough searchers and help them think critically about information.
Please bring your laptop or tablet if possible, and look forward to leaving with tangible results.
