Library as Instructional Leader
From 2009 to 2012, library and discipline faculty from Washington State Community and Technical Colleges (CTC) participated in a project involving over 40 faculty and about 2,000 students to document the impacts of library instruction on basic skills students. This presentation will cover how the project was implemented and what findings were produced. The following assumptions guided the project design.
- Information literacy is an accepted learning outcome
- The library can make a contribution to achieving information literacy
- Achievement of information literacy needs to start in developmental education (pre-college programs)
- Collaborative efforts by the library and developmental education is a viable way to achieve information literacy
