This two-part webcast series, presented by the ACRL Framework Advisory Board, will explore the convergence of information literacy and first-year writing instruction and the possibilities for collaboration.  What common ground can we find in the pedagogical conversation and practice of writing program faculty and librarians that can strengthen our partnerships and enhance student learning?  This introductory webinar will be followed by a second one in February which will showcase examples of innovative partnerships developed by librarians and faculty to integrate information literacy into writing programs.

Webcast One: Creating Collaborations through Connecting National Writing Guidelines to the Framework for Information Literacy
January 5, 2016

 

In 2000, the Council of Writing Program Administrators (CWPA) created the WPA Outcomes Statement for First-Year Composition (WPA OS), which was amended in 2008 and updated into its current form in 2014. In 2011, the CWPA teamed up with the National Council of Teachers of English and the National Writing Project to develop the Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing. These two documents together articulate the behaviors, understandings, and habits of mind that college students should develop in order to thrive in both their college education and beyond. These documents also share considerable overlap with the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (Framework for IL).

This webcast will introduce the professional academic library community to the WPA OS and the Framework for Success with the goal of outlining how they align with the Framework for IL. Participants will learn the ways that information literacy is already embedded in the writing instruction context, making campus writing programs and instructors promising collaborators in using the Framework for IL to transform classroom praxis. The presenters will share ways the connections between these disciplinary learning frameworks can be leveraged as tools for meaning-making and shared pedagogy in order to build strong collaborations around information literacy with faculty across disciplines.
 

Webcast Two: Innovative Instructional Partnerships for Librarians and Writing Faculty
February 10, 2016

This webcast will showcase examples of innovative partnerships developed by librarians and faculty to integrate information literacy into writing programs. Teams of rhetoric and composition and library faculty from a variety of types of institutions will share their theoretical and practical approaches for designing curriculum that infuses information literacy into writing classrooms, and will provide recommendations for other programs looking to revise their own curricula.

Learning Outcomes

From attending the first webcast, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize the histories, purposes, and relationships between the WPA Outcomes Statement for First-Year Composition (WPA OS) and the Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing (Framework for Success) in order to appreciate the similarities between the fields of writing studies and information literacy.
  • Connect the WPA OS and the Framework for Success to the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education in order to identify shared goals and language for the information literacy and writing classroom.
  • Use disciplinary learning frameworks as tools for meaning-making and shared pedagogy in order to collaborate with faculty across disciplines in the related areas of information literacy and writing instruction.

From attending the second webcast, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the shared threshold concepts of information literacy and writing studies to support the shared goals and objectives of library instructional programs and writing programs.
  • Better understand methods for integrating the WPA Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing (Framework for Success)  and the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education to shape undergraduate composition curriculum
