Information Fluency

 

You know that we meet with every FYE class, but librarians can do much more than basic introductions to library resources. We are teaching partners to help meet information-related learning objectives in and out of the classroom.

 

Collaborate with a librarian to:

  • Develop or refine information-related learning objectives, course assignments, and assessment;
  • Schedule single or multiple sessions of in-class library instruction or out-of-class workshops to improve student outcomes on projects/papers;
  • Embed a librarian or library tools and resources in your Sakai site;
  • Obtain handouts, web pages, videos, or other tools for information fluency outcomes;
  • Schedule research consultations with individual students for one-on-one assistance with specific research assignments (especially capstone projects);
  • Find and access appropriate information resources for specific projects;
  • Use discovery tools and/or the library catalog and selected databases;
  • Show students how to evaluate the authority of the information found in the context of information creation and use (peer review, primary sources, etc.);
  • Discuss hot information topics of the moment: protecting your privacy online, "fake" news, etc.;
  • Any topic related to the Framework for Information Literacy below.

Our Framework:
