The librarian at the Franciscan School of Theology (FST) and the Theology & Religious Studies subject specialist librarian at the University of San Diego (USD) collaborated to develop and then pilot a 1.5-unit information literacy course for the graduate students of FST. Development of the course took place over the summer of 2016, and the pilot was implemented in the fall 2016 semester. The class was launched initially as a pilot to test online delivery of the course, the reception of the course by students, and how well the course would connect with other FST coursework.

The instructors will share their experience developing the course, including experiences with Blackboard as the platform for delivery, sources for assignments and topics addressed, and how we developed and adapted the syllabus in include elements of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy. The instructors will also share their experiences implementing the course as a pilot to student volunteers. Finally, the presentation will include information from student evaluations and faculty observations of the course, and the instructors will share their expectations for the course in the future.
