In this post-truth era, Information Literacy skills are crucial to student success. This panel of BCC librarians, faculty, and staff will demonstrate our multi-pronged strategy for teaching these skills using both Credo’s new Information Literacy Modules, and Library created active-learning resources. Directed at everyone who works with students, including tutors, TRIO and Project Link staff, as well as Faculty, AT professionals and Administrators, this session is designed to show educators how they can easily add interactive modules to their curriculum, with or without the Library.   Berkshire Community College is pioneering the integration of Credo's InfoLit Modules.  A February 2018 webinar presentation describing their approach was attended by over seventy educators across the United States and Canada, including Fordham University and Texas A & M.  In addition to Credo, BCC is adding Guide On The Side modules and other interactive tools to further augment online, interactive learning of information literacy principles.  Come join us an find out how these tools can work for you!
