By the end of this class you will be able to:
– Apply new and exciting strategies for engaging students and faculty in the library and beyond
– Engage faculty more actively in information literacy programming
– Collaborate with faculty to design more effective library assignments
– Develop information literacy assessment tools
– Plan the integration of technology into information literacy training
