The Opportunities and Challenges of Using Critical Feminist Pedagogy to Teach Information Literacy
University Libraries MTI Luncheon

Carrie Forbes, Associate Dean for Student and Scholar Services, University of Denver Libraries
The profile of today’s college-going population looks much different than it did decades ago. Students today are older, more experienced in work, and more socioeconomically and racially diverse than their peers of decades past. To support this growing population, there is an urgent need for librarians to consider how feminist pedagogy can improve information literacy sessions to better serve these students. This presentation will detail the various ways that academic librarians can teach research skills to students using a critical feminist lens. Attendees will also have an opportunity to discuss the benefits and challenges of applying critical pedagogies to the library classroom. Register to attend: Required, as capacity is limited.
