Information literacy is crucial to students’ academic and professional success. Information literacy-related Expected Learning Outcomes are incorporated in Ohio State’s new General Education Curriculum. But what exactly is information literacy? And how do we teach it?

This workshop will provide an overview of information literacy as a concept and a practice in higher education. Participants will learn about resources and strategies that they can use to incorporate information literacy into their courses.
This workshop is open to all faculty, instructors, graduate teaching associates, and staff at Ohio State. Those teaching or developing GE courses with information literacy learning outcomes are especially encouraged to attend. Non-OSU affiliated participants are also welcome.
For eligible participants, attendance at the workshop can count toward completion of the Teaching Information Literacy teaching endorsement through the Drake Institute for Teaching and Learning.
