Can't Teach Information Literacy to ALL Students? Why Not Teach their Instructors?

To be successful at learning the components of information literacy, students need instruction in skills and good practices along with well-written assignments that require finding sources that appropriately match the information need. But too often, one or both of these is missing from a student's experience. Focusing on sharing information literacy concepts with instructors helps to create better assignments while allowing them to in turn teach these skills to their students. This session will describe a five-session Faculty Learning Community intended to help instructors integrate information literacy objectives into their assignments. Participants will gain ideas for sharing information literacy skills with instructors that will in turn help make students more successful.

Participants will:
  • Be able to describe a method of providing information literacy instruction to instructors.
  • Be able to formulate ideas for helping instructors at their institution to integrate information literacy objectives into their assignments.
