Format

**Please note, this webinar takes place in two sessions on Tuesday 07/08 and Wednesday 07/09.**

Successful information literacy programs depend on collaboration between librarians and classroom faculty. When faculty and librarians work together, the content of information literacy sessions is improved and the quality and relevance of library-based research assignments increases.

Through discussion and exercises, students will learn strategies for initiating and fully realizing collaborative opportunities with classroom faculty.

 

After this class, students will:

  • Understand the needs of faculty in the librarian/faculty relationship
  • Advocate for the information literacy and library services more effectively with faculty
  • Implement strategies for collaborating with faculty more directly on research based assignments
  • Apply ideas and strategies that foster collaborative work
