Faculty Seminar: Threshold Concepts in Information Literacy and Writing Studies

Ken Liss from the BU Libraries and Sarah Madsen Hardy led a Spring 2016 faculty seminar on “Threshold Concepts in Information Literacy and Writing Studies.” The seminar brought together writing instructors and librarians to talk about the most important concepts the two groups seek to teach and the many ways they overlap and interact.

 The three sessions focused on: 1) Threshold Concepts and Their Use in Writing Programs; 2) Threshold Concepts and the new Framework for Information Literacy (from the Association for College and Research Libraries); and 3) Librarians and Writing Instructors Collaborating.

 The seminar contributed to the ongoing collaboration between the BU Libraries and the Writing Program and will be followed up with additional activities in the Fall. 

Readings from the seminar are available on the Writing Program’s Blackboard site.
