Focus the Conversation: Faculty Outreach for Embedded Information Literacy

Guide conversations with faculty towards collaboratively developing library assignments which are developmentally appropriate. Learn to spot the links to information literacy competencies in course outcomes and other curriculum-related materials. Focus learning objectives in library instruction based on academic level, discipline, and information searching skills tied to applied technical (certificate) programs. Differentiate information literacy instruction between courses and programs, despite the similar vocabulary used by faculty. This approach is based on the Research Support Framework from Portland Community College.
