Who we are & what we do
The Learning and Outreach Services team is highly collaborative, providing and promoting innovative information literacy instruction across the curriculum to improve research and critical thinking skills. Our pedagogy is founded on the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, and we engage in professional development in the area of teaching information literacy.
In collaboration with instructors, we identify learning outcomes for instruction, develop learning objects (like tutorials or videos), lead classroom sessions, and consult on assignments. We also work directly with students in one-on-one research consultations to investigate immediate information needs and develop sound information evaluation habits.
