Joyner Library invites proposals from ECU faculty and instructors to participate in an immersive community of learning program to grow their students’ critical evaluation of sources, understanding of information creation and dissemination, and use of research within their disciplines.
Selected through a competitive process, 10 participants will explore key theories and practices in information literacy, interrogate what it means to their disciplines, and apply these ideas to classes they will teach in spring 2019. They will collaborate with librarians and other cohort members throughout the fall to incorporate changes like redesigning assignments, developing new class projects, and/or revamping library instruction workshops. Participants will be supported through information literacy iPad toolkits, an online community of learning, workshop series, and one-on-one consultations with a personal librarian throughout the fall and spring semesters.
Deadline extended! Proposals are due by 5 pm on Friday, October 5, 2018. Co-investigators will select the participants. Cohort members will be notified by October 8, 2018 so they will have ample time to make changes and integrate them into their teaching plans for the spring 2019 term.
Proposals are no longer being accepted for the 2018-2019 cohort.
All ECU faculty and instructors teaching during the spring 2019 semester are eligible to apply. Classes that will be modified can be undergraduate or graduate level, on-campus or distance education. Extra weight may be given to classes enrolling 50 or more students, those that offer general education or writing intensive credit, or classes that are required for majors.
Co-investigators will evaluate proposals using the following criteria:
