Description

How can instruction librarians best utilize diminishing resources to support expanding information literacy initiatives on their campus? To be successfully implemented on campus, information literacy depends on collaboration between faculty and librarians. Participants will learn about using “train the trainer” methodology to advance and sustain information literacy programs at their home institution. In “train the trainer” workshops, faculty are educated about information literacy through classroom activities, guided discussions, and library resources. This session will present methods for collaborating with faculty in order to empower them to integrate information literacy and library resources into the curricula. Participants will learn about a broad range of active learning exercises that can be adapted for their own “train the trainer” faculty workshops. They can also experience a small sample of workshop activities from the participant perspective.
