  Course Description
LIS 523 introduces principles, theories, and practical applications of user education, including design, delivery, and assessment of information literacy methodologies and resources. Emphasis is given to current and effective teaching practices in a variety of library and information center environments. Information literacy instruction (ILI) is a core public and educational service of libraries, and is an increasingly critical one. It is a vibrant subfield of librarianship, filled with energetic librarians who are passionate about teaching and learning. A great deal of the abundant literature addresses ILI in academic libraries, but those interested in school or public libraries will have the opportunity to tailor their learning in this course for those settings. While this course will be challenging, my hope is that this immersion into ILI will excite and engage you, and show you the possibilities of this aspect of librarianship.
