Implications – Drawing upon their expertise in how learners use information, academic librarians can use the findings to concentrate their consultative efforts to effectively partner with teachers to transform student learning experiences in higher education.

  • partnering with teachers to develop informed learning experiences by leveraging the expertise of the teacher and the librarian;

  • applying an informed learning pedagogic approach, and drawing from and sharing information literacy scholarship illuminating how information is used in the learning process;

  • creating informed learning experiences that are responsive to institutional and disciplinary perspectives; and

  • encouraging teachers to reflect on their intentions for content-focused learning and how learning outcomes may be shaped through interactions with information.
