In my role as Information Literacy Librarian at the University of Windsor I spend a great deal of time working with faculty and students to integrate information literacy skills into the curriculum.  To this end, I teach many sessions on research and library resources throughout the disciplines, helping students understand how to find, evaluate and use information effectively and ethically.

I also hold an instructor position in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS), teaching Mentorship & Learning (01/02-400). This course is part of the larger FASS Mentor program, which I co-coordinate.
