Introducing Instruct to Faculty? Use our Slides!
If you're preparing for a faculty institute or other event where you have the chance to present library resources, we have created a PowerPoint that you can use to introduce Credo's Instruct multimedia. The slideshow (PowerPoint and Google Slides versions are below) lets faculty know how teaching IL can benefit them, discusses what Credo Instruct offers, and describes how to use it in an online class.

Give this "Getting Started with Instruct" flyer to your faculty to help them understand the importance of information literacy and how Credo's resources can help them save time in the classroom and impart fundamental skills to their students.
