GEARUP Ambassadors are embedding information literacy concepts into their courses after participating in a three-day summer institute.  Ambassadors and librarians engaged in conversation around the Framework for Information Literacy, discussed backward design principles, and drafted learning outcomes.  Ambassadors and librarians will continue to collaborate in the upcoming year as ambassadors revise a course to more deeply integrate and assess information literacy. The ambassador program is a significant component of the Quality Enhancement Plan titled GEARUP with Information Literacy. The goal of GEARUP is to increase student learning and success through the purposeful integration of information literacy concepts across the curriculum.
