This CIE presentation aims to highlight the major changes AUBG IL program has undergone this semester. It will give examples of how lesson plans transformed aligned with ACRL frames and map out the plans for the next semester in terms of including more in-depth exploration and exploitation of different literacies.
The main purpose of this CIE presentation is to showcase the new AUBG IL program which was revamped to meet the new trends in teaching literacy skills. It is intended not only for all teaching librarians, but also for those faculty who wish to improve and enrich their instruction and content in their curricula.
Krasimir Spasov will share his experience gained so far through working collaboratively with AUBG faculty to bring substantial changes to Panitza Library IL program. Currently, our program has been redesigned so that it teaches students major critical and analytical skills in addition to the overall IL skills following the ACRL frames. We have been able to work in collaboration with our English department faculty to build a comprehensive series of one-shot sessions that starts from the freshmen orientation week and goes through the two English compulsory courses.
In Spring 2019, our program will be improved for the AUBG Freshman Experience course through the introduction of more digital content and practice. In addition, one of the two lessons offered every semester will include Visual Literacy as a response to the growing need of educating students on how to find, evaluate, and use visuals in a proper way.
