**Please excuse any cross-postings**

As promised, here is follow-up info regarding the "*Snapshot Survey on
Developmental Education Redesign, Acceleration, and Information Literacy*"
call sent out last month via Libs-Or and other list-servs. We incorporated
the initial survey results into our program, “Developmental Education
Redesign, Acceleration, and Information Literacy,” at the *2015 Information
Literacy Summit*, which took place last month in beautiful Hood River. It
was a lively, interactive program filled with idea-sharing, and it is
inspiring to be around so much collective passion and expertise!

Here are some major themes from the "snapshot survey" initial results:

   - Majority perspective from 2-year college faculty with dev ed experience
   - Half of librarians who responded not involved in dev ed resign efforts
   - Overwhelming support for IL outcomes in dev ed courses/program (not
   just gen ed IL outcomes)
   - Qualitative comments revealed differences in opinion on how IL should
   be integrated into dev ed courses: some feel IL content in dev ed should
   be scaffolded and a “stepping stone” to credit-bearing classes, while
   others want to develop relevant IL content within dev ed program itself

We transcribed all the notes from the program's group activities into our
PowerPoint slides, notes regarding best practices/activities regarding dev
ed and IL at your institutions, as well as notes regarding identified
gaps/needs. We then incorporated those notes – as well as pictures! – into
our PowerPoint presentation. Our presentation and handouts have been added
to the IL Summit 2015 conference site, at
https://ilago.wordpress.com/oregon-il-summit-2015/ . Direct URLs are also
provided below:

   - PowerPoint presentation [additional notes and pictures on slides 13-16
   and 18-19],
   - Handouts with definitions of IL, dev ed, and acceleration;
   bibliography; and snapshot survey questions and overall themes,

Any questions, please let us know. We hope to continue this important
conversation and collaboration of developmental education and information
