Abstract

Beginning in Fall 2016, Broward College's Center for Teaching Excellence & Learning (C-TEL) invited a faculty librarian to design a faculty development course that would be delivered college-wide (across four campuses) throughout the academic year. The course, Information Literacy in Your Course Design, provides faculty with an introduction to IL concepts including standards and the framework. It also includes a workshop portion whereby faculty in different disciplines explore possible avenues to enhance their existing coursework for IL. Activities from successful collaborations and embedded courses are provided to attendees, as well as templates for activities that faculty can use to integrate ILI into their own courses. Although attendance for this program has been low in the initial offerings, feedback has been positive. In this poster session, initial year outcomes (2016-17) as well as goals and outlook for upcoming year (2017-18) will be reported. Resources for librarians interested in similar programs for their own institutions will be made available as well.
