Course-Embedded Information Literacy in Small Theological Library: Joint Perspective, Best Practices, and Lessons Learned

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While information literacy has become widely recognized as an important element of the academic instruction, small theological libraries find many challenges in creating a course-embedded information literacy program due to lack of resources and understaffing, among others. This presentation will discuss the process of integration of the information literacy component into the curriculum of the 1st year undergraduate joint foundational course in Human Sciences, Theology and Philosophy at Saint Paul University, Ottawa.
In the first part of the presentation we will discuss a timeline, instructional design, pre- and post-assessment findings, as well as the effects of this project on librarian-faculty collaboration. Further, we will offer a unique perspective on this project from administration, faculty, librarians, and students point of view and facilitate a conversation between different organizational groups involved in this project.
We will draw conclusions based on this conversation and offer best practices as well as strategies to successfully implement similar programs in small theological schools. We will also discuss lessons learned and future implications of this project.
