Information Literacy support for faculty

by

Did you know… the Library offers information literacy support to faculty in a variety of ways, including information literacy workshops for your students and help with research assignment design.Information Literacy Workshops
Librarians can work with you and your classes in a variety of instructional models, depending on the needs of your students and the learning outcomes you would like them to achieve.  Please visit the Library’s For Faculty webpage and click on Information Literacy to learn more about the available options and related timelines.

In all cases, we will work with you to design sessions that are tailored to your curriculum and research assignments and reinforce the information literacy skills you’re teaching.

Research Assignment Design
Librarians can help you design research assignments that meet the specific information literacy learning outcomes you would like your students to achieve.  While the traditional research paper is still a commonly-used assignment, there are also a variety of alternatives that might better meet your needs.  Visit the Library’s For Faculty webpage and click on Information Literacy to find out more.

To discuss how best to fit information literacy learning outcomes into your classes, contact me, your Liaison Librarian, or Michelle Edwards Thomson, the Library’s Information Literacy Coordinator, at 403-342-3346 or michelle.edwards.thomson@rdc.ab.ca.

Good luck with the fall semester!  We look forward to seeing you and your students in the Library.
