Course-Integrated Instruction

Session Basics
Instruction librarians from George Washington University Libraries conduct class sessions based on the research needs of your students. A successful session will:

  • Address a specific assignment at a point in the semester when your students are conducting research, increasing their motivation and learning
  • Include the faculty member, whose presence emphasizes the importance of the research instruction and enriches student learning
  • Be planned by the faculty member and the librarian together, in order best to suit the course content, the students' learning styles, and the tenor of the faculty member's instruction

Instruction librarians are also happy to visit your course to participate more informally in discussions about research.

The libraries' instruction program aligns with Information Literacy standards established by The Middle States Commission on Higher Education and The Association of College and Research Libraries.
