Your Student is My Student: Information Literacy and the Transfer Student Experience
Friday, November 20, 2015
9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Loyola University-Columbia Campus (directions)
Transfer students. Where are they coming from? Where are they going? This program will give attendees an understanding of the experiences of students transitioning from community colleges to four year academic programs. Learn about the kinds of experiences transfer students have had, especially related to information literacy instruction and use of library resources. Our featured keynote speaker is Thomas Atwood, Coordinator of Information Literacy & Library Instruction at the University of Toledo, part of the OhioLINK consortium, who will talk about developing instructional programs to meet the needs of transfer students. The rest of the day will consist of a variety of presentations and discussions to help you better understand the transfer student experience and prepare them for success. Lunch will be provided.
