“A Faculty Senate/Carney Library Brown Bag Lecture series Presentation”
Faculty are probably familiar with the term “information literacy.” It appears frequently in discussions of standards, especially NEASC standards, and in relation to life-long learning. Librarians use these standards with your students.
This Brown Bag session is the first open meeting of a departmental seminar series, funded by the Provost.
Led by Kari Mofford , this session will introduce the series and will focus on information literacy standards and learning outcomes. Faculty participants in the seminar series will explore practical activities to integrate information literacy into their own courses and ways to encourage better student research projects.
