PLANS for Information Literacy
PLANS is a stipend-based faculty professional development initiative for enhancing Information Literacy skills within the College’s curriculum. Teams of 2-4 faculty members apply with their PLANS for Information Literacy project proposals emphasizing Pedagogy, Lifelong learning, Academic excellence, and the Needs of Students. PLANS teams begin their work at a May kick-off workshop, continue their work over Summer and Fall, and present their projects at the Innovation@Emerson showcase in Spring. More than a dozen teams from across the institution participated in the 2015, 2016, and 2017 PLANS programs.

Course Design Spa
The Course Design Spa is a one-day event held in the library one week before classes begin in the Fall and Spring semesters. Consultants from offices around campus (library, teaching center, IT, disability services, counseling center, writing center, diversity office, etc.) offer a variety of “Treatments” to faculty. Massage therapists provide chair massages throughout the day. Faculty are free to decide how they want to structure their day and on which aspects of their courses to focus.
Lunch is provided. Participation is limited to 30 faculty to ensure access to the consultants.
Information Literacy Collaborative
The Information Literacy Collaborative (ILC) is a stipend-based professional development opportunity for faculty and librarians to work together to enhance student learning in and about discipline-specific research. Participants gather for two days in May to focus on integrating information literacy into a Fall course of their choosing. At the end of the Fall semester, participants gather to talk about changes they made to their course and the effects on student learning.
Past versions of ILC occurred in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. To date 70 faculty have participated in the program.

Librarians develop customized workshops for faculty in shared departments or courses. Past customized workshops have been developed for faculty from a single department (e.g. the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies) or from a single course (e.g. CC100). Librarians also host open work days for faculty from a shared course. For example, each Spring the Library hosts an open work day Retreat for faculty teaching in the WR121 course. Open work days provide lightly structured opportunities for faculty to work with each other and librarians to develop their courses and assignments.
