Designing Information Literacy Assignments

Tuesday, August 12 at 1:30pm to 5:00pm

Center for Teaching Excellence UNH 3030, 1 LMU Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90045

What are the challenges students have with information literacy in our classes? In what areas/aspects of our class does information literacy matter? How can assignments best address these aspects? How can assignments be designed to address information literacy challenges students experience? Guided by these questions and examples, this workshop offers the opportunity to design information literacy assignments at different levels and to workshop them with other instructors and librarians. This workshop will also offer the opportunity to design assignments related to the modules in the library’s FYS Information Literacy tutorial and review that tutorial (whether as part of a FYS or not), as well as the integration of the tutorial into the syllabus. This workshop is designed for all instructors using information literacy assignments (FYS Faculty and Writing Instructors, RA Instructors, and Instructors teaching classes with Core Information Literacy flags or any other classes addressing information literacy).

Participation in this workshop is limited to registered participants only. All registered participants are required to attend the entire workshop.

Lunch will be provided at 12:30pm and refreshments will be available in the afternoon. If you have any specific dietary needs, please do let us know.

Please direct all questions and RSVP to teachers@lmu.edu
