Session Description

Two instruction librarians and one faculty member collaborated to assess the development of students’ information literacy skills in a writing course using various pedagogical models, specifically, how library information sessions and online instruction modules can be used to supplement traditional classroom curriculum on information literacy in first-year composition classrooms. Students received regular instruction in writing skills from the course instructor, and information literacy instruction from the librarians, and prior to attending librarian-conducted instruction sessions, students utilized Credo Instruct information literacy modules (videos and tutorials). These materials introduced students to a broad range of information literacy skills ranging from information assessment and procurement to the proper citation of quality sources. Takeaways include how a reflective journal can help students with their metacognition of the information involved; how utilizing online modules in a “flipped classroom” manner improves student learning; and how librarians working closely with faculty improves students’ information literacy as well as instruction librarians’ teaching.
