Abstract

This poster session is a case study of the College of Charleston Libraries and Center for Student Learning partnership to design and deliver a series of complementary study skills and information literacy workshops during 2013-2014 academic year. Workshops in the “101” series were designed for the general undergraduate student population wanting more information on study skills. Workshops pairings in the “201” series were designed with information literacy topics geared toward upperclassman, graduate students, faculty, and staff interested in more advanced skills. Sessions were facilitated by campus instructors with unique insight, interesting experiences, or special knowledge and capability in workshop topics.The series was developed to build community, increase attendance, and provide outreach at the Library to the campus community.

The presenters will discuss the program design process, topic selection, marketing strategies, attendance statistics, and assessment of program for the first year. The interdisciplinary team concluded that collaborative approaches to more structured program design requires an organic teaching model that is fluid at every stage. Attendees will be provided with a list resources and a poster handout that can be shared at their home institutions. The poster session will include interactive print capabilities and participants will be able to further explore series resources with their mobile devices during and after the poster session. Partnered with face to face discussions, the interactive print features will provide attendees with additional Websites, audio and video files in order to construct a media rich and connected poster experience.
