Conference Proceeding


How can librarians engage faculty in information literacy? This session demonstrates how a faculty workshop can be used as a strategy to motivate change in how faculty design research assignments. We will discuss using current research to draw faculty into the information literacy conversation, perform assignment analysis to illuminate the “burdens” placed on the student, and illustrate how assignment re-design can mitigate the subsequent student struggles that may lead to patchwork papers or plagiarism.
