UNCG Instructors- Apply for an Information Literacy Course Development Grant

The UNCG University Libraries will offer three $1,000 awards for courses to be taught in spring 2017 to support restructuring a course in order to more intentionally integrate information literacy and research. This award is open to anyone who teaches a course at the undergraduate or graduate level and has the authority to make substantive changes to that course.

The purpose of the Information Literacy Course Development Awards is to support instructors in revitalizing courses to foster information literacy skills. These re-envisioned courses will incorporate information literacy throughout the semester, teaching students to locate, evaluate, synthesize, and cite sources in the manner most appropriate for the subject area.

The Libraries will hold a workshop on October 13 at 2:00 in the Faculty Center to discuss the awards and give professors the opportunity to workshop their ideas with librarians.

Details and application process are available here
