Teaching Information Literacy endorsement pathways expand

Are you interested in learning more about information literacy and how to teach it? Consider completing the Teaching Information Literacy teaching endorsement from the Drake Institute for Teaching and Learning. Developed and facilitated by the University Libraries, Teaching Information Literacy is intended to provide participants with an enhanced understanding of information literacy as a concept and introduce strategies and resources that instructors can use to incorporate information literacy into their courses. The Teaching Information Literacy endorsement is available to all faculty, instructors, staff, and graduate teaching/research associates at Ohio State.

Beginning this summer, there are now two options for completing the Teaching Information Literacy endorsement:

  • Self-Paced Course: The Teaching Information Literacy course is available through CarmenCanvas. It is a six-module course, estimated to take 12 hours to complete. Participants can start the course whenever they are ready and complete at their own pace.
  • Workshops: Participants can now also earn the endorsement by attending and/or completing 12 hours of information literacy workshops, including synchronous, virtual workshops (via Zoom) and asynchronous, on-demand workshops (via Carmen Canvas). To view upcoming synchronous workshops, see: Information Literacy Virtual Workshops. To view available on-demand workshops, see: On-Demand (Asynchronous) Workshops.
