lib_fac_seminar.jpgThe Science and Engineering Library and the Information Literacy Collaborative hosted a one and a half day seminar for instructors in the Institute of Technology on May 19 and 20, 2010.  The purpose was to create and support a community of faculty and instructors committed to developing student skills in finding, evaluating, and synthesizing information in their academic coursework and for lifelong learning.  The seminar introduced participants to a variety of Libraries services, tools, and skill sets to help support instructors and students in their teaching and learning.  The seminar included sessions on information literacy, library and Google research tools, copyright, scholarly communication, data management, and offered consultations with subject librarians for integrating these resources into current and future assignments.

Here are a few comments from faculty and instructors responding to questions on beneficial aspects and feedback overall:
    "Revelations about what the library can and does do to facilitate faculty and student productivity"
    "Learning about available resources, talking with fellow faculty about issues related to effective pedagogy"
    "Very informative.  I learned a lot.  It makes me think of new ideas and more effective teaching strategies."
    "Thank you all for a fun and informative workshop!"
