Once again, Fogler Library is partnering with the Office of Assessment to offer an Information Literacy Assessment workshop for instructors at UMaine. Below is information about the workshop and a registration link. Refreshments will be provided.
Framework for Assessing Information Literacy Across the Disciplines: May 23rd, 2017, 2:00 – 4:00 PM in the University Club in Fogler Library: This session will be facilitated by Nancy Lewis, Head of Reference Services at Fogler Library, and librarian instructors of Fogler Library’s course, LBR 200: Information Literacy.
Description of session: Subject librarians from Fogler Library’s Information Literacy team will facilitate a conversation focused on developing both a shared vocabulary and appropriate tools for assessing information literacy skills. Using the Information Literacy VALUE Rubric as a guiding document, the group will consider examples of assignments gathered from a range of disciplines. Participants will discuss ways to incorporate information literacy into existing curricula and assignments.
Who is it for? All faculty (tenured, tenure-track, lecturers, adjunct teaching faculty), and teaching assistants.
What is the intent? To identify ways to assess information literacy competencies within a range of disciplines.
This session is part of an ongoing series on writing, quantitative reasoning, and critical thinking.
