A Lovely Day for IL

February 24th was a rainy Saturday but 15 faculty, 4 librarians, and one dean gathered at the lovely Bastyr campus for collaboration and contemplation on Information Literacy.

At the end of the day, participants said,

"IL is a first step to holistic education."

"Now IL extends in my perception beyond library teaching to the entire SCCC organization."

"I am aware of the college-wide need to bring IL into the lives of our faculty colleagues and their respective students."

Next steps: Faculty will be invited to participate in IL fellowships that support efforts to engage more faculty from their programs and/or divisions.
