Welcome to the LITE Workshops@ Addlestone’s Contributors’ Corner – a place to discuss, plan, exchange ideas, collaborate and develop instructional resources.
When an interdisciplinary team at the College of Charleston redesigned the Library’s technology workshops, collaborators decided the concept of information literacy should provide the thread integrating offerings with the Library’s goals and mission. They developed new strategies in delivering instruction, going beyond mere technological proficiency to address 21st Century literacy skills for all campus patrons.
