This month, 793.73 offers us up a “crossward” themed around some of the hosts and journalists from throughout the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s history. The answer to each hint fits into one of the rows of the acrostic below, but it’s up to you to sort out where.
Many academic librarians teach one-shot information literacy (IL) sessions. But how many of us deliver for-credit IL courses?
The ACRL Instruction Section, Information Literacy Best practices Committee, is interested in learning more about IL instruction in Canada and the U.S., particularly about for-credit IL courses.
If you are (or have been) participating in a for-credit IL course at a Canadian university or college, we’d love to hear from you. We’re interested in learning:
- Is your course a half- or full-credit offering?
- Are you teaching in a variety of disciplines (e.g., arts and social sciences, engineering, science)? If so, which disciplines/areas of study?
- Are you teaching undergraduates, graduate students or both?
- How long have you been teaching a for-credit course (e.g., a year, five years or more?)
- Are you teaching in an online, face-to-face or blended learning environment (all or a combination)?
Please email Martha Attridge Bufton (see contact information below) and let us know more about your teaching.
