Information Literacy Instruction
The Library offers information literacy (IL) instruction in a variety of formats:
- Credit courses for students
- Faculty education: one-on-one training, assignment design, and workshops
- Classroom IL Sessions: hands-on experience for the whole class, led by a librarian
Classroom IL Sessions
- Please review the guidelines below before submitting your IL Session Request form. WR 60, 65, 121, and 122 instructors: review the Writing class arrangements before requesting a session.
- Submit the IL Session Request form to Mary Beth Hamilton (email@example.com) at least a week in advance of the date requested.
- Faculty must be present at the IL session.
- Classroom IL sessions are most effective when...
- held in a computer lab. Hands-on experience is important for students to learn and remember these new concepts and skills.
- tied to a specific assignment.
- they focus on one or two specific resources rather than a general overview of the Library's resources. (Remember, we'll help you design an effective research assignment, too!)
- Allow time for your class to complete the follow-up evaluation online.
