Combo Platter: Collaborating Across Campus and with Different Institutions

Publication Date



Preparing faculty for their role in global leadership is a collaborative effort. Administrators, faculty, IT, media specialists and librarians all have an important part to play. In 2011, I was asked to develop and teach a one-week information literacy module via Blackboard for the faculty participating in the Teacher Scholars Program (TSP). TSP is a yearlong collaborative project between The Center for Teaching and Learning, and the academic departments on campus. I believe that this called for a new approach to thinking about information literacy (IL) and literacy itself. This presentation provides an overview on the collaborative project, Teachers Scholar Program (TSP) and how information literacy was integrated into the TSP curriculum.
