New ACRL/TLT Online Literacy Workshops

ACRL and the TLT Group are co-sponsoring three online information literacy workshops this fall. The latest ACRL/ TLT Group online information literacy workshop, Best Practices in Information Literacy in Undergraduate Education, is scheduled for October 13, 20, and 27, 2010. Each session begins at 2 p.m. EST, and lasts 60 minutes.

For the past several years, workshop leaders Susan Ariew and Ilene Frank, along with members of the ACRL’s Institute for Information Literacy’s Best Practices Project Team, have been working with colleagues in the field on criteria for developing, assessing, and improving information literacy programs in undergraduate education; and identifying categories and case studies of best practices in undergraduate information literacy programs.

This workshop will introduce a variety of related resources, present the findings of the Best Practices team, describe key elements of model programs, invite feedback and discussion, and engage participants in activities to help them reflect on their own teaching practices, as well as advance the work of their own Information Literacy Programs.
