In this free one-hour webinar, Laura Saunders discusses how to promote information literacy in the wider curriculum and develop IL policies.

Originally presented April 12, 2023

Changes in higher education, including increased attention to information literacy - in part due to the impact of mis- and disinformation, and the move to online learning during the pandemic - have opened up opportunities for academic librarians, but also raised questions. How can academic librarians take advantage of these opportunities and expand the role of information literacy programs on campus?

In this webinar, Laura Saunders discusses strategies for promoting information literacy programs and advocating for the role of these programs in the wider curriculum. Laura also shares advice for developing related policies.
