Integrating information literacy in distance learning contexts

In the “Integrating information literacy in distance learning contexts” breakout session, we walked through a case study of online education at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, pointing out how the education model is changing and how the library must respond to the growing number of online and hybrid classes. Highlights of the discussion included the importance of personal outreach to faculty who teach online, how to build a Faculty Toolbox and what should be in it, and what a library’s online education policy should include. Distance learning is a major part of the future (and present) of education, and so distance services should be a major part of the future of libraries, too. Materials and conversation highlights from this session are available online.
