What Information Literacy Means to Me: Collaborating with Faculty to Understand Student Perceptions of Information Literacy
MetadataShow full item record
This presentation recounts the experiences of The Faculty Learning Community for Improving Student Research Literacy, a community of professors and librarians at Miami University (Oxford, OH). Community members created a survey for students in their courses to self-assess information literacy skills that faculty perceived important. Approximately 400 students completed the survey, the results of which were matched to professor definitions of information literacy and a common list of information literacy skills desired by professors. Professors then utilized that data to enhance their syllabi by infusing information literacy skills throughout their courses.
