CTL Module: Incorporating Information Literacy into Instruction

The Van Pelt and Opie Library and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) invite faculty and graduate students to attend a module, consisting of three one-hour sequential workshops, Incorporating Information Literacy into Instruction.

Instruction and Learning Librarian, Sarah Lucchesi, is delivering the module through the CTL’s University Teaching and Learning (UTL) Seminars program. In this module, using the framework of Michigan Tech information literacy rubric for undergraduate students (learning goal #6),  we will explore the library’s information resources, options for assistance with additional instruction, and assignment elements that allow students to practice each of the information literacy skills.

Faculty and graduate students are welcome to register only for this three-workshop series, or as a part of the complete UTL Course Design program.

The workshop sessions are scheduled for Monday March 4, 18, and 25 from 11 a.m., to 12 p.m., in Library 244. Please register by 12 p.m., Friday March 1. If you have any questions, please contact
