Announcing the preliminary details for the 10th Annual Augustana Information Literacy in Academic Libraries Workshop!

When
Thursday, December 2, 2010 (with optional Wednesday, December 1 "information literacy advice consultations: assessment or otherwise” one-on-one sessions with Deb, Megan or Lisa and an evening dinner)

Topic
Integrative Programmatic Assessment for Information Literacy

Summary
Student learning is the goal of our information literacy efforts.
Quality instructional design, active learning, and rubrics are elements
of our repertoire and a focus on the classroom is a key component in
building a robust information literacy program. Best practices for
information literacy programs, however, challenge us to look beyond the
single session and consider how our programs articulate within
institutional contexts. Building an integrated approach to program
evaluation will enable us to connect individual student learning
assessments to classroom goals to institutional outcomes. This workshop
will present strategies for considering how the library contributes to
student learning through an institutional framework and connecting
individual assessment efforts to a common framework.
