Program Details

Keep pace with advances in instruction methodologies and new technologies in the field of library and information science. This certificate will provide you with the foundational knowledge necessary to become an effective teacher and instructional designer.

Explore topics including information literacy pedagogy, instructional design principles, online learning and assessment of learning outcomes. Examine teaching and learning from different cultural perspectives and investigate how culture and language play a role in how students learn in different environments. You will also have the opportunity to complete a capstone or internship project and receive hands-on practice in information literacy instruction.

Earning the certificate alongside the full degree allows you to complete a distinct specialty that is identified on your transcripts and prepares you to pursue advanced career opportunities in the field.
