Workshop Abstract
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.

New This Year! Consultations
We’re pleased to offer workshop registrants the opportunity to meet with one of the workshop presenters for a 50-minute consultation regarding any aspect of information literacy assessment. These consultations will take place between 1:00 and 5:00 pm on Wednesday, December 1. We cannot offer choice with regards to with which speaker you meet, or at what time, but we can guarantee that you will be informed of these details by Friday, October 22. There is a fee of $75.00 per registrant for a consultation, and we can accommodate multiple registrants from the same institution who wish to take part in the same consultation. Each interested person will register individually for the consultation session, noting additional intended persons with whom you wish to share a consultation.

We would advise against making travel arrangements, including booking flights, until your consultation has been confirmed.
