Information Literacy Instruction Program
Faculty members and teaching assistants at FSU are welcome to request specialized instruction relevant to course content and projects at least one week in advance of the desired date. These sessions can cover a wide range of resources for general or specific subjects; can focus on one particular information tool, such as how to use a particular index or database; or can emphasize research strategies.
Information Literacy instruction sessions typically meet in one of the Instruction Studios on the first floor of FLITE. We request that faculty and teaching assistants be present and participate in the session in order to emphasize the importance of strong information retrieval skills.
