Changes in college accreditation standards, new competency-based degrees, and the rapid growth of online programming are having a big impact on the academe. Faculty, who were in the past criticized for “living in an ivory tower”, are now actively evaluating their courses to remain competitive and relevant in today’s higher education marketplace.
What does this mean for the college librarian?
Dorothy Schramm, Director of Institutional Assessment at Keuka College, and Cathy Sweet, Assessment Coordinator at St. John Fisher College, will share their insights into the role of the college librarian in the academic curriculum and in administrative decision-making at the institutional level. This interactive session will focus on practical and pedagogical aspects of teaching and assessing information literacy and the various functions of the library in higher education. The program will address three areas: (1) assessing the students’ development of informational literacy skills, (2) some of the ways college librarians are actively participating in teaching and assessment, (3) ideas for the future.
