Teaching at the Intersections: Aligning Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy in the One-Shot Library Instruction Session


Thursday, 4/7/2016 - 1:00 PM-2:00 PM (Central)

If we expect undergraduate students to interact with the products of scholarly communication throughout their college career and beyond, we are obligated to teach them about the processes, circumstances, and influences at play in their production. However, it can be difficult to dive into into the world of scholarly communication in a one-shot instruction session with limited time and many learning goals.

With the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education and the Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy white paper as its foundations, this webcast will provide participants with ideas and skills to develop pedagogical strategies that engage undergraduate students on a range of scholarly communication issues within a one-shot instruction session.

Learning Outcomes

  • Recognize value and utility of a variety of lenses for articulating the intersections of scholarly communications and information literacy in order to inform your professional practice as an educator.
  • Develop ideas for classroom activities appropriate to your professional environment that focus on the intersections in order to engage students in the greater information life cycle.
  • Identify strategies for fostering dialog with colleagues and campus partners in order to identify common interests and opportunities, and increase awareness of the complexities of the contemporary information environment.
