Brookens Library is pleased to announce the opening of our 5th Faculty Associate Program. The Faculty Associate Program is a chance for UIS faculty to collaborate with librarians to integrate information literacy instruction into their courses and improve student outcomes.
As always, the Library Associate Program includes a $1,500 stipend to support the collaboration. The work is primarily conducted over the summer in close contact with a specific librarian. In addition to the creation or revision of curriculum that includes a significant information literacy component, there are also expectations of assessment as well as presenting the results to your colleagues.
Past associates have revamped research assignments, created online tutorials, created new assignments, embedded information literacy instruction, and assessed student learning.
Applications are open to all full-time faculty and instructors from now until the final deadline of February 26th, 2018. All potential applicants are advised to contact their liaison librarian if they have any questions about the program or the application process.
Full details on the application process and the program itself can be found HERE.
