Information Literacy: A core competency for student academic and post-college success
Information literacy includes a set of competencies uniquely positioned to support student success. Information literacy cuts across disciplines and supports broader goals of higher education to develop lifelong learners, informed citizens, and critically engaged individuals. In this workshop, librarians from a variety of institution types will share examples of efforts--from starting partnerships, mapping to the curriculum and assessment to career and work readiness--unique to their institutions and beyond, to inspire attendees’ thinking on addressing information literacy in their accreditation. Campus administrators, faculty and librarians seeking insights on information literacy are encouraged to attend.
