The best time to implement this course would be before any scheduled library instructional session. This helps to ensure that students come into each session with a solid foundation of the subjects that will be addressed in each session, which may encourage more participation and thus a more effective lesson. Additionally, since the modules will help to reinforce the basics of information literacy, instructional session time can be spent entirely on preparing students for their upcoming assignments, thus preventing the need for any additional sessions.
