Higher education institutions struggle to equip students with the foundational skills they need to succeed. Today’s students require information literacy, critical thinking, communication, and other skills to excel throughout their education and in the workplace. From teaching first year students, to supporting distance and online learners, to honing the techniques of more experienced researchers, your library can play a pivotal role in this institution-wide instruction goal with Credo’s learning tools ...

Every institution, no matter the size, has a unique path towards successful library instruction.

How do you decide what’s right for your institution?

Let's take a look at Deborah and Charlie.Both librarians are on a path towards a successful library instruction program. However, each is at a different point in their program implementation and has different needs.

Deborah
View

Deborah is launching a new information literacy program at her institution. She’s reached out to faculty and has made some good inroads, but hasn’t reached the level of engagement she knows she’ll need to get the program off the ground. With Credo View, she saves time and resources by using professionally created videos for in-class, online, and point-of-need instruction, which allows her to focus on other aspects of her strategy. Right off the bat Deborah notices a difference when she assigns videos on IL basics to students as homework, allowing her to spend in-class time delving deeper into students’ specific areas of need. She also offers to help faculty embed videos on topics like proper citations and academic integrity onto their course pages, building partnerships she will later use to expand her IL instruction program even further.

Instruct

Charlie has spent several years building an effective library instruction initiative and enjoys a strong network of support with faculty all across his campus. But how does he continue to develop his program when he and his staff only have so many hours in each week? With Credo Instruct, Charlie enhances the content of his current instruction sessions while extending library services to offer curricular support to additional courses in the form of embedded videos and tutorials. Instruct has also helped him improve the quality and depth of his assessment capabilities; its tutorials, quizzes, and pre- and post-tests function as formative and summative assessments respectively. His new reporting capabilities mean that his library can play a larger institutional role in assessing foundational skills of students campus-wide.
