Information Literacy: From a Standalone Class to General Education Integration

Dixie State University has had a standalone, required, credit based information literacy class for more than ten years. Faculty librarians and departmental faculty have noticed that students are not learning the research process and evaluation of information techniques at the time of need, therefore the students are not retaining the information. While working with the General Education (GE) Taskforce, tasked with the goal of campus wide GE reform, it was concluded that creating modules of information in both the Canvas (learning management software) and LibGuides would be an ideal way to provide ready to go lessons for faculty across disciplines. We will provide information about our planning process, methods for successfully working with faculty throughout the campus community, and the results of our spring 2018 beta test of this method. Resources are intended to be supplemented by librarian instruction or as standalone learning modules for faculty that are more experienced in teaching research skills. As development progresses, we will scaffold the research process and searching techniques to range from general education to senior capstone.
