This FREE workshop is sponsored by:
The College of St. Elizabeth, LibraryLinkNJ - The New Jersey Library Cooperativeand VALE.
In January 2010, the Information Literacy Progression Standards were launched at the VALE (Virtual Academic Library Environment) Users’ Annual Conference. The Standards were developed in response to the Comprehensive State-Wide Transfer Agreement(2008) to support the information literacy skills development of transferring students. The Standards were endorsed by the NJ State College Council of Academic Vice Presidents in August 2010. They have also been accepted by the Academic Officers’ Association for inclusion in the Guiding Principles for Affirming General Education Course Status document.
Several institutions are already using the Standards to integrate and assess information literacy within the curriculum or just as a basis to start a conversation between librarians and faculty. This one day program is intended to facilitate collaborative work between librarians and faculty using the Standards to embed information literacy within courses.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
Interpret the Information Literacy Progression Standards for use at the institutional level
Develop and modify assignments incorporating specific information literacy skills
Identify faculty perceptions of information literacy
Develop best practices by learning from the experience of attending librarians and faculty who have successfully introduced the Standards in their courses.
