"Information Literacy is …
The set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning."
The 21st Century Information landscape is an exciting place full of innovative technology and constant connectivity. We are no longer passive consumers of information, but both creators and curators. While the implications are meaningful, there is no doubt that this information overload can be overwhelming. Information literacy is a skill-set that can enhance lives academically, professionally and personally.
This toolkit aims to provide instructors with resources that will help integrate information literacy concepts into course instruction. This guide is based on the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education which outlines six core learning concepts that help students in academia and beyond. You can explore through the videos, learning objects and class activities. Feel free to use or adapt any of these resources in your classroom and submit your own appropriate activities.
For more information on integrating information literacy into your instruction, contact your liaison librarian.
