Illuminating scholarship to students : Librarian-faculty course collaborations Cassidy, Alice L. E. V.


Collaborations between teaching faculty, librarians and others can lead to enhanced learning experiences for students, especially in the interrelated areas of scholarly research, information literacy and academic integrity. I focus on collaborative projects related to credit courses, ranging from 1st through 4th year, at two Canadian universities, the University of British Columbia and the University of Toronto. Examples include such techniques and strategies as in-class activities, out of class homework and assignments, flexible assignments and online resources. I highlight collaborations across units and working with students as co-scholars. I present examples of evidence of efficacy of such collaborations. I include online links to templates, step-by-step details and other resources for librarians, teaching faculty and other colleagues to use or adapt.
