This Task Force completed its final report on June 26, 2006. With that, this blog may also conclude unless the task force has more to say from time to time.
A new blog to continue discussions about educational technologies that might be used in libraries can be found here: http://letc.wordpress.com
Thanks to everyone who participated in this planning process. Great work!

Goal 2: To promote a mastery of evolving information literacy that is integrated into the curriculum and learning management systems.
Synopsis of goal: As a teaching library engaged in the development of information research skills, we will collaborate widely to integrate information literacy into the curriculum and to embrace all current and emerging instructional technologies. Timely, effective technology based resources must be created that can be used inside and outside the classroom environment. To achieve results that will have lasting effects, this team will recommend ways to expand the library’s outreach and collaborate with teaching faculty and technology staff across campus. Their report will propose effective strategies to engage our partners in integrating information literacy into learning outcomes and to assess the success of our efforts.
