Foster Auditorium and Media Site Live. Discussion of best practices and principles for creating learning outcomes for information literacy teaching tailored to the needs of a specific class, whether it be a first level or upper division disciplinary class. This will lead to a discussion on turning these learning outcomes into a lesson plan and design for teaching the session. Resources for developing learning outcomes and creating lesson plans will be shared for use during the workshop and for future reference. All attendees (whether in-person or on Mediasite) should come with a class in mind for which they wish to plan (or re-plan).
