How do we move beyond the well-worn path of information discovery and evaluation in our instruction? Join librarians and archivists from Western University and Huron University College, as we share stories that explore teaching civic engagement as an IL learning outcome.



Comment dépasser les voies régulièrement empruntées pour l'enseignement de la découverte et de l'évaluation de l'information? Joignez-vous aux bibliothécaires et archivistes de l'Université de Western et du Huron University College afin d'en apprendre davantage sur l'engagement civique enseigné comme un objectif d'apprentissage en compétences informationnelles.
