Proposal Abstract

Information literacy skills are crucial to participation in the 21st century knowledge economy, but there are few formal structures to aid students in developing these skills. Too often for our Digital Native students, the relative ubiquity of information is conflated with the tools to navigate it. For students who do receive information literacy instruction, it is most often given in the form of an in-class session taught by a librarian. As librarians, we are presented with the challenge of entering someone else's classroom for a short time and instructing a wide variety of students on the information skills they will need to succeed. In this session, a panel of four librarians will discuss their own unique adventures in one-shot instruction sessions, and pose questions for group discussion, such as: What does Information Literacy mean to you?, What are the best/worst experiences you've had with a one-shot teaching session? and What are the information skills students need most? The goal of this session will be to establish a dialogue between librarians and course instructors about the unique challenges of teaching information literacy skills. This round table session will be of particular interest to those interested in learning more about incorporating information literacy content into their courses.

Statement

Teaching in someone else's classroom is always an adventure. There are many additional difficulties in lesson planning when you don't know the students, may or may not have information about the course content, and have few ways of finding out the impact of your lesson.
