Faculty Guide for Library Instruction

A guide for collaborating with PC librarians to embed information literacy into your course.

Information Literacy Assessment in Your Course

Consider partnering with PC library faculty to assess student learning in your courses.  We are interested in collaborating at any stage of the learning process in order to create meaningful assessment opportunities.  Together we can:

  • Embed contextualized information literacy into your curriculum 
  • Design assignments that engage with information and research in your discipline
  • Leverage rubrics that effectively measure students' understanding and implementation of information skills and concepts
  • Strategize on how to "close the loop" of assessment to improve student learning

Whether assessing individual assignments or scaffolded learning across a degree pathway, consult with your PC library faculty to create effective assessment of information literacy for students in your program.  As a first step, we have matched our PC Library Information Literacy Competencies with the PC Institutional Learning Outcomes VALUE Rubrics to identify where information literacy aligns with PC assessment rubrics.  To discuss opportunities for assessment partnerships, please contact Library Instruction Coordinator Ben Aloe, benjamin.aloe@phoenixcollege.edu.
