Materials in this guide were created in part by the Hacherl Research and Writing Studio and Western Librarians. Materials were informed by evidence-based curricular strategies focused on building equity into academic literacies praxis. The Teaching & Learning Division of Western Libraries considers the following four learning outcomes in all instructional design and delivery:

  • Use and value INQUIRY for gaining and sharing knowledge
  • COLLABORATE as members of a diverse intellectual community
  • Demonstrate a sense of AGENCY for managing one’s own learning
  • EVALUATE and challenge traditional and oppressive norms
