C301: Changing the Recipe: Instruction Librarians’ Change it Up

Track C: (International Ballroom West) —  Learning: At the Heart of Libraries – Wednesday 25 October 
10:15 – 11:00

At Nevada State College, the first digital library in the state, the instructional design librarians are moving beyond one-shot instruction sessions and collaborating with faculty to integrate information literacy directly into their research assignments. In 2016, the Library’s two-day workshop led participants through the redesign of their research assignments using the Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT) framework. TILT framework has increased student retention and graduation rates, particularly of underserved and first-generation college students. The presenters describe the positive impact the workshop had on faculty perceptions of student research and future collaboration with the library; innovative ways the librarians are collaborating to integrate information literacy more broadly throughout the College; and how participants can use the TILT framework to positively impact student outcomes and reimagine the library’s roles and services.
