Course Description

All first-year college students are not the same—far from it actually! Starting with the understanding of the unique backgrounds of each student is necessary for developing effective instruction. At the same time, if you know your student body, there are research and trends that can be useful in the development of information literacy lessons.

Information literacy expert Lauren Hays, will introduce attendees to pedagogical methods that recognize the differences of each learner. She will also share research on first-year college students and explain how the findings from the research can be applied in information literacy instruction. Attendees will leave the session with practical ideas for developing information literacy lessons for first-year college students.
