Embedding Information Literacy Faculty Learning Community

Faculty are increasingly concerned about the need to graduate "information literate" students: students who can find, evaluate, and use information and understand the ways in which information is created, disseminated, and organized in our society.  UAA’s Institutional Learning Outcomes state that its graduates will be able to “employ independent learning and information literacy skills.” The Information Literacy FLC explores ways to ensure the diffusion of information literacy skills throughout UAA’s curriculum. It includes, but is not limited to, recipients of the Information Literacy Mini-Grants, which bring together library and discipline faculty to collaborate in the revision of courses so that students are afforded opportunities to develop information literacy skills.
