Survey on teaching information literacy

A researcher at the University of South Florida is carrying out a survey aimed at academic librarians who teach information literacy. I had a quick look at the questions, and although some of the terminology is North American, it looked to me as though it would be applicable to academic librarians in other regions of the world as well. "This survey seeks to determine standard practices among professional academic librarians in terms of the kinds of activities instruction librarians engage in when designing and developing instructional materials, and the amount of time spent, on average, on each activity. Furthermore, the principal investigator hopes to find out more about how well supported academic librarians feel in their instructional duties." The information sheet is at http://guides.lib.usf.edu/c.php?g=755864 and the survey here https://usf.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_795oOqq22KIBGU5
