Integrating Information Literacy into Your Classes
Friday, May 16 at 9:00am to 12:30pm

This workshop will focus on developing assignments and other course elements (lecture, in-class activities, etc.) to integrate information literacy in your classes (satisfying the core flag, First-Year Seminar, Rhetorical Arts, or other class). Starting from the definition of information literacy, we will look at several successful models and examples of integrating information literacy into the Core, and dedicate a significant amount of time to providing you with the time and support to develop fully-fledged information literacy assignments for your class(es).

Please direct all questions and RSVP to teachers@lmu.edu

This workshop is a Core Course Development Workshop - for details on the new Core Curriculum and other events, see HERE.

 

 

Workshop: August 12, 2014

Designing Information Literacy Assignments
Tuesday, August 12 at 1:30pm to 5:00pm

What are the challenges students have with information literacy in our classes? In what areas/aspects of our class does information literacy matter? How can assignments best address these aspects? How can assignments be designed to address information literacy challenges students experience? Guided by these questions and examples, this workshop offers the opportunity to design information literacy assignments at different levels and to workshop them with other instructors and librarians. This workshop will also offer the opportunity to design assignments related to the modules in the library’s FYS Information Literacy tutorial and review that tutorial (whether as part of a FYS or not), as well as the integration of the tutorial into the syllabus. This workshop is designed for all instructors using information literacy assignments (FYS Faculty and Writing Instructors, RA Instructors, and Instructors teaching classes with Core Information Literacy flags or any other classes addressing information literacy).
