The library strategically targets Writing 150 classes to introduce students to Information Literacy Core Competencies and library services. We strive to provide students with a solid foundation they can build on as they continue their academic career at GVSU.
As library faculty, we partner with you to discuss the best way to support your students’ learning. There is no one size fits all approach; a library instruction session can be as brief as fifteen minutes or last the full class period. The key is designing our instruction to meet your students at there point of need.
We will work within the framework of your course and structure the learning activities around an assignment or a specific need. Let us actively engage your students to bring them to a natural tipping point where they are ready to learn and apply specific information literacy skills. We want to take them to a place of discovery and connect them to the world of information beyond Google. It is our goal to seamlessly integrate our library instruction as an active component of your course.
We have a team of librarians who want to work with you and your students!
