It Takes a Village: Embedding Information Literacy into the First Year Experience [Event flyer]

Presented By: Anne-Marie Deitering, MLS, Oregon State University

Creative and critical thinking, lifelong learning, intercultural competence, civic knowledge and engagement, and information literacy -- when it comes to our goals for our graduates, we are aiming high! None of these goals can be accomplished by one person or one program and none will happen as the result of one learning experience. Information literacy is no exception. The research shows that when it comes to information literacy, students are most successful when it is embedded campus-wide.

In this presentation we will discuss what we have learned about first-year students and their research skills. We will examine what they know about knowledge and learning, and we will identify the barriers they face navigating research assignments in their first year. And we will leave with some new ideas about how to embed these concepts throughout the first-year experience.

Anne-Marie Deitering is the Franklin McEdward Professor for Undergraduate Learning Initiatives and the Chair of the Teaching and Engagement Department at Oregon State University Libraries & Press. She has been on the steering committee for U-Engage, OSU's First Year Seminar program, since its inception. She is currently serving as the Association for Research Libraries' liaison to the National Resource Center for the First Year Experience.
