English for Academic Purposes Faculty Resource Guide: Library in Your Classroom

Learning Outcomes, Assignments, and Instruction

You can work with the EAP librarian to design information literacy learning outcomes tailored to your classes. The librarian can also assist you in designing assignments that incorporate critical thinking about information and information resources including, but not limited to concepts such as:

  • articulating the information creation process and discussing the value of information at each step of the process
  • identifying the packages in which information presents itself and the appropriateness of these resources for academic conversations
  • participating responsibly in a scholarly conversation (i.e.: academic writing)
  • developing the idea that research is inquiry, not merely searching a database
