Together with the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and The College of Arts & Sciences, the Indiana University Libraries are pleased to offer three instructional development grants of $1500 each for the design or revision of a course to incorporate information fluency into undergraduate curricula. The purpose of these grants is to offer faculty the opportunity to create and reenergize courses that teach students how to do scholarly research. These courses will give students practice in creating projects, papers, or lab reports that incorporate, build upon, and challenge a variety of sources with the end goal of presenting original ideas. It is our assumption that proposed courses will not focus exclusively on information fluency but will incorporate it into the examination of discipline-specific subject matter as a means of developing better research skills among students. Such courses, whatever their subject matter, will teach students to select, cite, and even reject sources; identify and articulate the arguments of these sources; and build upon and respond to the work done by other scholars.
