How’d You Do That?? From One-shots to a Minor in Information Studies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this presentation, we describe our process of rethinking and reinventing our approach to information literacy instruction and developing a minor in Information Studies. Over two years we decreased librarian-taught one-shots, eliminated our ineffective liaison (non)program, collaborated with the Writing Center to provide peer-to-peer research and writing support, and developed train-the-trainer workshops for faculty. We describe the Information Studies curriculum, its connection to The Framework, and how teaching in the minor has impacted our self-perception and identity as librarians.  We engage attendees in asking themselves the hard questions that we asked ourselves as we began to reinvent how we work.  
Participants will:
  • Evaluate their role as teaching librarians and their satisfaction with current work models in order to prioritize and/or rethink their efforts in teaching information literacy.
  • Consider the applicability and usefulness of different models used to teach information literacy in order to determine if/what may be useful at one's own institution.
