About the Information Literacy Faculty Fellows Program
The Information Literacy Faculty Fellows are a core group of UNCW faculty and instructors who are interested in applying cutting-edge information literacy concepts to teaching in their discipline. The program is co-sponsored by Randall Library, Undergraduate Studies, and the Center for Teaching Excellence.
Since the inaugural program in 2018, this program has become an annual event in the Spring semester. Ten accepted faculty and instructors will:
- gain an understanding of the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education;
- explore practical ideas for applying one or more information literacy frames to their instruction;
- gain a cohort of faculty across UNCW departments who are interested in information literacy concepts;
- work closely with their liaison librarian on information literacy concepts;
- generate concrete products that integrate one or more information literacy concepts;and
- collaborate on ways to share these concepts with their departmental colleagues.

Expectations & Compensation
Fellows receive a certificate and $1000 stipend upon completion of the program. Fellows commit to:
- attending all sessions,
- completing pre and post reflections,
- meeting at least once with their liaison librarian, and
- submitting a final product that demonstrates integration of one or more information literacy Frames (view previous projects).
Interested in Participating?
Please note that the 2020 program is complete. We anticipate opening applications for the 2021 cohort in early January 2021.
If you are interested in being part of the next cohort of Information Literacy Faculty Fellows, please complete the application by TBD.
Successful applications demonstrate interest in and engagement with information literacy, as well as their ability to share program content with colleagues. We also hope for representation from schools and departments from across the university.
