Evolving Strategic Partnerships for Teaching and Learning in the Academic Ecosystem (ACRL / Choice / Credo)
Today’s college students are inundated with information that they encounter online and in-person. How do they make sense and make use of such information for their research? How can academic librarians foster an inquisitive learning culture? Instruction services have become important strategic priorities for academic libraries to consider. Now more than ever, librarians play a catalytic role in teaching information literacy, research, and critical thinking skills. From fact-checking to active learning techniques, librarians can promote information literacy as a transformative learning experience in collaboration with teaching faculty and other strategic partners beyond the one-shot workshop.
