Information Literacy as a Core Competency: WASC Senior College and University Commission (SCUC) Accreditation Case Study
Discussants Jennifer Fabbi (Library Dean, CSU San Marcos) and Carole Huston (Associate Provost, University of San Diego) will discuss WASC SCUC’s recently updated handbook and its specific inclusion of information literacy as a core competency for student learning. Fabbi will focus on promising campus practices in assessing student learning in information literacy from the “bottom up,” having worked with over 60 WASC campus teams in the past three years. Huston will discuss USD’s engagement in piloting “embedded librarian” models within a core curriculum structure at first-year and advanced levels, providing an on-the-ground account of how WASC's inclusion of libraries and librarians in its core competency planning has impacted student learning from a campus perspective.
