Session Category :  Research into Practice 

This presentation will explore the process and application of transforming a four-credit, general education information literacy course to reflect the threshold concepts outlined in the 2015 Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education at Cal Poly Pomona. The presenter will describe the process of matching learning outcomes derived from the framework with required institutional learning outcomes, highlight the shift in course organization, content and assessment these changes produced, and discuss student reception of those changes across during the Fall 2017 and Winter 2018 academic quarters. This presentation will also provide guidance for instruction librarians seeking to transform similar for-credit courses, identifying helpful resources, potential pitfalls and lessons learned along the way.
