Seminar 03F - Developing an Information Literacy Faculty Institute on Your Campus

Tuesday, November 03 | 9:30AM–5:30PM | Meeting Room 404
Session Type: E09 Hybrid
One of the key challenges facing higher education is developing 21st-century literacies—information, digital, and media—among students and faculty members. To increase student information literacy and research skills, Cornell developed a Faculty Institute and associated Information Literacy Program based on similar programs at other institutions. The Faculty Institute Program includes presentations from library, policy, educational technology, and faculty development specialists.

This interactive workshop will guide you through a planning and implementation process for an Information Literacy Program at your institution, which includes providing library information and literacy instruction, incorporating policy issues, building faculty community, developing student research assignments, and using Web 2.0 technologies to support research assignments. It will offer a practical introduction to creating an institute to develop effective teaching strategies and technologies to support research-based student assignments that build undergraduates' information literacy skills.
