The West Virginia University Libraries have selected six faculty members to participate in the second year of an information literacy initiative designed to help faculty enhance their courses.
The Information Literacy Course Enhancement Program, a collaborative effort between the WVU Libraries and the Provost’s Office, is focused on fulfilling the University’s 2010 Plan for information literacy to become a curriculum component across all disciplines.
“We have learned a great deal this year about designing discipline-specific lessons that address critical research components through active learning. I look forward to sharing our learning with the next group of participants in this program,” said Carroll Wilkinson, WVU Libraries’ director of instruction and information literacy.
This year’s participants are Brian Ballentine, assistant professor of English, Eberly College of Arts and Sciences; Louis McDonald, associate professor of plant and soil sciences, Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design; Beth Nardella, instructor of exercise physiology, the Department of Human Performance and Applied Exercise Science, School of Medicine; Melissa Olfert, assistant professor of human nutrition, Davis College; Kate Staples, assistant professor of history, Eberly College; and Barbara Douglas, senior lecturer, nursing, WVU Institute of Technology.
