Overview

All of the contributions to the book are co-written by faculty-librarian teams that have successfully worked together to develop assessment strategies across a wide range of disciplines, including business, political science, education, adult learning programs, and the humanities. Saving you countless hours on course or accreditation preparation, each chapter includes a detailed literature review, a model for practical implementation, a discussion of the partnership process, and an examination of assessment data. The teams also share guidance for overcoming a variety of collaborative obstacles and challenges, and report on how their assessment process significantly improved student learning outcomes.

Framed in a practical, real-world context, this invaluable new resource provides a clear set of best practices to help librarians and faculty work together to initiate new information literacy assessment efforts or to improve established programs in their own institutions.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Courses delivered via an online or hybrid platform are by no means a new concept. From the onset, however, librarians and educators grappled with achieving the same levels of knowledge transfer, critical thinking, and information literacy (IL) as achieved by conventional classroom teaching. Mackey (interim dean, Ctr. for Distance Learning, SUNY Empire State Coll.) and Jacobson (head of user education programs, SUNY at Albany) have assembled a veritable bible on how to do it right by providing eight original models of IL best practices and successful online implementations. The book is organized into two types of learning: "Blended & Hybrid" and "Open & Online," i.e., a self-paced model integrating IL, communication, and technology. Chapter components include recent or related literature, collaborative efforts between faculty and librarians, impact on student learning, assessment methodologies, and appendixes of any tools (e.g., surveys) used to measure the outcome. VERDICT The cited references alone make this text an invaluable resource for understanding international trends and challenges surrounding online learning at both the graduate and the undergraduate level. Also highly recommended for committees, educators, and administrators tasked with meeting the AACSB, ACRL, and/or Middle States standards for information literacy and accreditation.—Judy Brink-Drescher, Molloy Coll., Rockville Ctr., NY
