Information literacy instruction has gone through several phases at the Lebanese American University (LAU). Based on LAU libraries’ strong belief that the information literacy skills are deemed necessary not only for the students’ academic success but also for lifelong learning, several strategies were adopted.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic and based on the Strategic planning 2019-2023, the LAU Information literacy committee decided to develop information literacy modules to be embedded in the English courses.
These information literacy modules are divided into three independent modules:
- Research process
- Copyright, Plagiarism & APA style
- Information quality
Each of these modules involves lesson plans, tutorials, quizzes, and assessments.
English chairperson and English Program coordinators were approached and approved embedding these modules in the English courses 102 & 202.
Join us to learn how the Lebanese American University has developed these modules. This Forum will provide insight on how the LAU Information Literacy Committee developed these modules.
Time will be allocated for Q&A.
This event is organized by the AMICAL Information Literacy Initiatives Committee as part of the ongoing Information Literacy Virtual Forum series and will be facilitated by committee members Christine Furno and Michael Stoepel.
