An initiative between the WVU Libraries and the Provost’s Office will help up to five faculty members enhance their courses while earning a $3,000 stipend.
The WVU Libraries’ Information Literacy Course Enhancement Program is focused on integrating information literacy into the classroom. The University’s 2010 Plan, www.wvu.edu/~2010plan, states that information literacy will be a curriculum component across all disciplines by 2010.
Each of the selected participants will receive a summer stipend, or other relevant professional remuneration if 12-month faculty apply, and will work with the WVU Libraries’ Director of Instruction and Information Literacy and their librarian liaison to create discipline-specific active learning assignments that address information literacy concepts. The revised courses will be taught during the fall 2009 or spring 2010 semester.
Participants will also take part in a Showcase of Information Literacy Learning Progress Forum during the academic year.
