DESCRIPTION OF SESSION:
Denton Inquiry 4 Lifelong Learning (DI4LL): Lilly Ramin, Cherry Fuller, Byerly, Gayla (UNT), Greg Hardin (TWU). The Denton Inquiry 4 Lifelong Learning (DI4LL) is a collaborative project among librarians serving the constituencies of a range of institutions in the greater Denton literacy community through a shared investment in lifelong learning in our community. Librarians from TWU/UNT will discuss how the information needs and research skills of incoming students need to be addressed at an early age. The model used was “guided inquiry” which emphasizes a process appropriate to each level of the student. The presenters will give background information about the project and collaboration with teachers, professors, and librarians outside of their library type. Working together, we will focus our efforts on positively impacting the literacy of pre-kindergarten through graduate school learners.
