Interactive Information Literacy Teaching Strategies – 2 Part Series (New Date)

Date(s) - 05/19/2014
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm



In this two hour, two hours each day online class, we will explore methods for improving teaching and learning in the information literacy classroom.

On day one, students will learn 10 easy-to-implement and topic-specific teaching methods that will quickly increase the interactivity of the information literacy classroom. These methods will help build confidence as students work toward using more advanced hands-on teaching strategies.

On day two, students will explore 10 more sophisticated and programmatic techniques, including problem-based learning and peer teaching.

Learning Outcomes:

 By the end of this class students will be able to:

  • Teach information literacy concepts more interactively, including plagiarism, using subject-specific databases, controlled vocabulary, selecting search terms, scholarly/peer-reviewed vs. popular sources, using search engines, and evaluating information.
  • Integrate simple teaching methods to increase student interaction
  • Integrate more complex theory based teaching methods programmatically to increase student interaction.
