Revamping First-Year Instruction Through Multiple Means: One Team's Experiences

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Our library’s first-year instruction team recently collaborated on an initiative to better align our instruction program with our intentional approaches to teaching and assessing first-year students. This initiative involved redesigning our student learning outcomes in order to shift from standards-based assessment to a set of learning goals that emphasize the cognitive and affective domains of information literacy; refreshing our first-year writing research guide to focus on inquiry and iteration over tools and mechanics; and developing a follow-up online module to reinforce content covered in short one-shot instruction sessions for a communications course. This presentation will explore our (re)design processes for each project and examine the theories and research that informed our choices. Participants will leave with the tools to identify and initiate similar projects to help align intention with practice for first-year information literacy instruction in their own programs.
