Info Literacy & Assessment Support
This workshop focuses on embedding information literacy and assessment support in ongoing coursework. The process makes it possible for the instructor to concentrate on helping students learn course content when they are completing assignments that require library research activities rather than concentrating on things like library instruction, assessment and addressing plagiarism issues. A librarian, embedded in the course, handles these things.
The embedded librarian (1) provides hot links in the course syllabus that point students to relevant resources, (2) builds class-specific or subject-specific LibGuide(s) based on student projects and assignments, (3) answers student e-mails concerning information needs, and (4) evaluates students information literacy skills. Each of these will be illustrated or demonstrated in the hands-on activities part of the workshop.
The workshop starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m., with a break for lunch at noon. The registration fee is $100. This fee entitles participants to all workshop activities, a copy of the PowerPoint presentation and other handouts, and lunch.
