Library Connect Webinar - Trends in teaching information literacy


Do you need some information literacy inspiration?


How do you ensure your information literacy training is compelling and covering the right material? In this webinar, two librarians and a library-based copyright expert will discuss interesting ways to enhance your information literacy instruction in the classroom and beyond.


The author of Copyright the Card Game will look at ways to reframe copyright education from what copyright might stop people from doing to the positive aspects of copyright, injecting a bit of fun along the way. An engineering librarian will show how gamification has had a positive impact on his engineering students’ learning by engaging them in a competition with group activities and rewards. And the head of a 12-person information literacy team will describe how she used curriculum mapping to gain a better understanding of whether instruction was targeting the right areas and supporting learning outcomes.
