In this session, participants will learn from a library LMS (learning management system) team to rethink information literacy education in the blended learning environment. At the end of this session, participants will be equipped with evidence-based strategies to collaborate with students, faculty and administrators to improve access, equity, and quality in information literacy education when creating, embedding, assessing, and promoting library resources in LMS. In our hands-on workshop, the following learning outcomes will be effected:

  1. Learners will create a plan for effectively designing and embedding information literacy and instructional services in their online learning management system.
  2. Learners will be able to assess the inclusivity and accessibility of information literacy and instructional services provided through their online learning management system.
  3. Learners will feel confident marketing information literacy and instructional services in their online learning management system to diverse stakeholders through collaboration with other departments.
