Teaching and Learning Series


The Teaching and Learning Series focuses on proven strategies that can be implemented at the course level to create inclusive climates and engage all students in deep learning. Our goal is to provide our ELAC family with workshops on self-regulated learning, active learning, research-based principles for building inclusive communities and teaching to increase student learning, developing a first-gen mindset, recognizing student learning and success and to consider how information about who our students are and how they are performing can be used to ensure their success.

Scaffolding Information Literacy In the Classroom and Beyond

Across disciplines, students are expected to use information in various ways. Information literacy is the ability to know when there is a need for information and then be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and ethically and effectively use information, an important lifelong learning skill students need to cultivate while here at ELAC and beyond. In this workshop, participants will be able to identify opportunities to embed information literacy instruction in their work, whether through classroom instruction or other interactions with students.
