Information Competency Plan for the California Community Colleges. Final Report.
Auyeung, Shuk-chun; Hausrath, Don
In August, 1997, Gavilan College (Gilroy, California) was awarded a Fund for Instructional Improvement grant to review the current and projected roles of information competency instruction within California community colleges and to develop an information competency draft plan for system implementation, training, and evaluation. Five day-long workshops were held in which 139 participants from 67 California community colleges provided feedback. Recommendations were developed in the following areas: (1) staff development; (2) a collaborative environment, including new and continuing roles for libraries/librarians; (3) knowledge and technology infrastructure support, including the library collection--both print and electronic; (4) the challenge of developing courses and proposing changes in degree requirements, including California statutory law and administrative regulations; and (5) instructional models. The report includes a timeline for implementation of recommendations. Appendices contain information competency standards and resolutions; the information competency component for instruction in California Community Colleges; information competency plan project meetings; workshop participants; and information competency sample models.
