Abstract

The one-shot workshop isn’t enough anymore. Libraries are expanding their instruction beyond workshops and comp classes to meet the growing needs of their students, the institutional pressure to improve student outcomes, and accreditation requirements to provide training in information skills. But how can a library transition from a workshop to a course, or curriculum? In the fall of 2013, Credo piloted the Information Literacy Course Modules, an ACRL standards-based course with over 50 pieces of multimedia and assessments. This poster session will share the lessons we learned from designing the ILCM and examples of what works from our customers who implemented it at their institutions. Conference attendees can expect answers to these questions:

  • What did we learn about the instructional design process?
  • What types of multimedia will engage students?
  • If you build it, will they come? What works for capturing students’ attention?
  • How do you engage faculty with an information literacy curriculum?
  • What works for increasing buy-in?
