Baylor University Librarians designed a tiered approach to information literacy instruction to reach students at three different points during their undergraduate careers. The initiatives were developed through collaborations with various campus partners. Each tier is visually represented by a light source in order to reflect the University's strategic plan, Illuminate. Efforts included the creation of online learning modules using Adobe Spark (accessible via Canvas as a self-enrolled course), a re-working of the Freshman Composition information literacy curriculum, and an overhaul of the Subject Guides to incorporate more instructional materials and visual indicators of the tiered approach.

Participants will:
  • Learn how to develop a tiered approach to information literacy instruction in order to reach students at three main touch points during their undergraduate careers.
  • How to connect and collaborate with campus partners in order to create relationships that enable opportunities for information literacy initiatives to develop and flourish.
  • Identify some of the technologies that can be used to create online modules for information literacy instruction in order to provide online content for each tier of a scaffolded information literacy program.
