I've created a freely available LibGuide, called "Teach Information Literacy & Critical Thinking," with teaching tips, exercises and ideas. Librarians in many libraries of all types have worked very hard for decades to help learners improve their information literacy skills. However, there are few librarians compared to the numbers of our learners. In order to leverage our limited time, one approach is to work with instructors at all levels to help them incorporate information literacy instruction into their own curricula and assignments. This guide is designed to help instructors do just that. Additional teaching ideas and tips, comments and links are all welcome on the site.
