Presentation Description

This presentation showcases the collaborative work of American University’s College Writing Program-Library committee, which was created to improve learning goals for teaching research to first-year writing students. In 2009 the committee developed a codified vision for information literacy instruction, with the goal, of invigorating (and in some cases, reinvigorating) the teaching of research skills to both new and seasoned librarians and writing instructors. To facilitate the collaboration, the committee created several instructional modules that promote discussion between teaching partners about classroom values. The presenters will share and demonstrate some examples of the teaching modules.
