Faculty Guide to Information Literacy: Incorporating Info Literacy into the Classroom

Incorporating Information Literacy into Your Classes

From the ACRL Introduction to Information Literacy for Faculty and Administrators, consider the following ways of incorporating information literacy into your classes:

  • Positioning information literacy as a central student learning outcome
  • Working with librarians to help teach students information literacy skills in various ways including collaborating on assignments, incorporating research requirements, creating websites or tutorials, providing research “labs” with librarians available for help, etc.
  • Incorporating information literacy components into research assignments and related course requirements, especially in orientation, English, and communication courses
  • Helping to create an information literacy course for credit and encourage the campus community to promote it to students
