Creating Informed Learners in the Classroom – 1 LEU

The Creating Informed Learners in the Classroom project, made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (RE-13-19-0021-19), facilitated librarian-instructor partnerships to integrate information-rich student projects into disciplinary classrooms. The project was a partnership between librarians at Purdue University, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and the University of Arizona. Over the course of 4 weekly online sessions, the project team trained 15 librarian-instructor teams (5 from each university) to use an information literacy framework called Informed Learning Design to design student projects that enable students to use information in new ways to learn in their courses.

In this 60-minute webinar, members of the project team will:

  • Describe the informed learning design framework and how it shaped the 4-week online curriculum
  • Present preliminary data and results from a research study about how instructors and librarians experienced using the informed learning framework
  • Describe the multi-institution partnership and how we worked together to develop and facilitate the CILC program
  • Share our experiences, insights, and lessons learned about developing an information literacy program for librarians and instructors
