Abstract

Hybrid Information Literacy Instruction: An Experiment in Blended Learning

In Spring 2017, the American University in Cairo research and information services librarians piloted an experimental blended learning class for upper division undergraduate students who hadn’t completed AUC’s required information literacy course (which is typically aimed at first-years). Most content typically shared during face-to-face sessions was instead taught online, with a single in-person meeting. Two hundred and seventy students enrolled in this class. In this poster session, Kathryn Vanderboll will share our reasons for developing this course, the institution-wide collaboration efforts we undertook to make it possible, our choices while creating curricular content, our methods of online delivery, and more. She will analyze the student feedback this project received, and she will reflect on challenges and opportunities for blended learning at AUC, and Egypt more generally.
