Librarians at National Louis University have been engaged with stakeholders for the past four years to integrate Information Literacy into the undergraduate curriculum that goes beyond traditional instruction. The outcome was a 2 credit course on Digital Information Literacy now required in three undergraduate degree programs. The success of this course resulted in the creation of additional credit courses tailored to the learning outcomes of specific programs. We have learned from this process how to strategically discuss Information Literacy with academic departments. In this session, we will draw from our experience to facilitate a group discussion on transforming Information Literacy by: critically examining our assumptions on Information Literacy, discuss pedagogical and theoretical models for transforming Information Literacy, brainstorm strategies for holding conversations with various stakeholders. Our focus will be on engagement with participants to generate discussion, rather than presenting “how we did it.”
