Ninth Annual WID Institute

Tuesday through Thursday, May 16-18, 9:00-3:00, and Friday, May 19, 9:00-12:30

The WID Institute supports faculty who are developing or revising a course in which writing and research play an important role. This yearÂ’s institute will have a special focus on information literacy and will be facilitated by Daisy Benson, Library Instruction Coordinator and Daniel DeSanto, Information Literacy Librarian.

Through the institute, participants will integrate information literacy, research, and writing into a course in order to enhance student learning. Institute activities will also encourage participants to reflect on their own research and writing experiences in order to better shape studentsÂ’ experiences. Because of the special emphasis on information literacy this year, faculty working with upper level undergraduates and graduate students, and those developing new course are especially encouraged to apply.

For more information and/or to apply, visit the WID Institute page.
