Abstract

Information literacy (IL) is a critical component of a 21 century education. Education professors are confronted with the responsibility of teaching information literacy on two levels since pre-service teachers need to become proficient in IL skills for their own success and also need to learn how to teach their future students to become information literate (Branch, 2003; Carr, 1998; Hinchcliffe, 2003). In an effort to determine the extent to which teacher education programs incorporate information literacy instruction, researchers at a large midwestern university conducted a survey of teacher education faculty in selected states. The survey sought to gather data related to faculty knowledge, inclusion, and assessment of information literacy in teacher education programs, and the degree to which there was collaboration between librarians and faculty in the teaching of information literacy skills. st
