Library Teaching Fellows Program

This August, the University of Minnesota libraries and the Center for Teaching and Learning sponsored a library fellowship program. A primary goal of this fellowship program was to support faculty, instructional staff, and teaching assistants in designing courses with thoughtful components of information literacy. This program was being pilot tested this fall; hopefully, it will be offered again in the near future.
