In 2017, a team of five librarians from Marston Science Library at the University of Florida entered into a partnership with the University Writing Program to improve information literacy and lifelong learning amongst undergraduate engineering students in ENC3246. ENC 3246 is a required course with approximately 25 traditional sections a semester and 2 large-enrollment online sections. The principal goal of ENC 3246 is to prepare engineering majors to communicate effectively in their fields by emphasizing the literacy skills employed in professional decision-making. The large, asynchronous online class revealed areas in course design that failed to translate successfully from the traditional classroom to a digital platform, particularly in the area of information literacy. This collaboration is motivated by three goals: to better align course literacy instruction with ABET criterion, customize library instruction to meet student needs with regards to particular assignments, and provide instructional coherence across all sections to support less experienced ENC teachers.
