Curriculum Mapping Information Literacy for Academic Librarians

$200.00

Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs

Do you find yourself teaching a lot of one-shots and thinking, “this could be better,” or “I wish I knew more about the students in my classroom”? Curriculum mapping is a tool used to determine where students learn, practice, and master different skills and practices. After going through a curriculum mapping exercise, you can better plan your instruction, make stronger cases for proactive integration of information literacy instruction, and help instructors understand the ways in which you can support their students across the curriculum. Curriculum mapping can turn a series of seemingly disconnected one-shots into a sustainable instruction program. As a result of this course, participants will be able to: Explain the process for creating a curriculum map; Analyze course descriptions to determine potential information literacy connection; Create a curriculum map for one major/program supported; Develop a plan for communicating the curriculum map to the department/program.
