Presentation Description

Last fall, Macon State College began offering themed sections of its three-credit Freshman Year Experience course. The Library saw this as an opportunity to go beyond the one-shot library instruction class and offered a themed section entitled “Information is Power!” In this presentation, the librarian/instructor will share her experiences combining a Freshman Year Experience class with an information literacy class, as well as her reflections on working with the same group of students throughout a semester versus teaching them for one fifty-minute library session.
