Presentation Description

Our presentation grew out of a desire to find out why many instructors include little or no research in their courses. We will report on a survey faculty who include research assignments in their courses and those who did not. We will discuss how the information gathered from this survey will help us develop evidenced-based strategies for promoting information literacy to faculty, and collaboration between librarians and instructors.
