Description

Information literacy educators continue to struggle to get significant instruction into the curriculum through the use of “one-shot” sessions that focus on inculcating generic IL skills. In response, librarians have turned to "embedding" or "situating" discipline-specific IL learning opportunities within disciplinary curricula. But given the limited resources and staff time of most academic libraries, how can we develop and ensure sustainable relationships with the many disciplines on our campuses? Presenters William Badke (Trinity Western University, British Columbia) and Robert Farrell (Lehman College, City University of New York) will highlight systematic theoretical and practical approaches to developing sustainable collaborative relationships with disciplinary colleagues, arguing that information literacy must ultimately be “owned” by the disciplines if meaningful learning is to occur. Following an overview of Badke’s recent book, Teaching Research Processes and Farrell’s recent work to apply Badke’s ideas at the City University of New York, attendees will be invited to discuss challenges faced when librarians seek to locate ownership of information literacy instruction within the disciplinary classroom.

Situating Information Literacy in the Disciplines: New Opportunities for Sustainable Instruction
