Description

How can librarians provide information literacy instruction for high enrollment courses and not lose our minds? Find out how one librarian at California State University, Fresno, in collaboration with her colleagues in the Freshman English Program, created a more sustainable, scalable and open approach to instruction by using a blog. By using an approachable writing style, customized content, and a video introduction by the librarian, the blog has a more approachable and personal feel than many digital learning objects and can be used by instructors in many different ways. In this session, the presenter will discuss the blog’s development and integration into two pilot courses as well as plans for improvement and eventual use in all freshman English courses. If you’ve ever felt daunted by the idea of providing instruction to high enrollment courses, this session is for you.
