Engaging that Other Audience: Encouraging Faculty Involvement in Information Literacy Using New Technology
Presented at the 2009 Information Literacy Summit, Moraine Valley Community College, Palos Hills, IL
Literature on the subject shows that information literacy programs truly thrive when they receive support and involvement from teaching faculty. While efforts to integrate information literacy instruction into the curriculum and collaborating with faculty are not new, many of the opportunities and tools for doing so are.
Whether you have full-support from all faculty (lucky you!) or varying levels of involvement from isolated departments or instructors here and there, we all have access to the tools we need to spark interest, take conversations to the next level, engage individuals, and create collaborative environments for designing information literacy sessions and programs.
