This paper attempted to examine the effect of instructors' information literacy profile on the quality of teaching in the higher education system.The research was a descriptive, casual comparative study in terms of data collection. Moreover, it could be considered a developmental research in terms of objective. The population consisted of all students in Master’s and doctoral programs at Kish, Alborz, and Tabriz Campuses affiliated to University of Tehran. Of the total target population, 120 students were selected through convenient sampling based on gender and university. For data collection, a list of final-semester evaluation and information literacy profile from Eisenberg and Berkowitz (1992) were employed. Pandpazir and Cheshmeh Sohrabi (2010) calculated the reliability of the questionnaire using Cronbach’s alpha at 0.93. They also reported and verified the validity of the questionnaire. The data analysis involved variance and correlation tests. The findings suggested that all subscales of information literacy profile were in a positive correlation with the quality of teaching and all variables turned out to be significant at an alpha of 0.001. According to the results, it was found that in all academic disciplines, instructors with a high information literacy were viewed proficient by students. In fact, they tended to perform better in teaching and conveying the educational materials to students.
