Introducing Our New Information Literacy Tutorials

Introducing Our New Information Literacy Tutorials | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

This week we are launching our new information literacy tutorials in a subject called Information Savvy. If you are wondering what information literacy entails, it’s the ability to find, evaluate, effectively communicate and manage information in today’s digital world. It’s also the ability to create original content by processing information and using it correctly.

 

The first topics in Information Savvy include: Search Better and Use Information Correctly. Later, we hope to add topics on Managing Information, Understanding Data and Infographics and Exploring Media Messages.

Situating Information Literacy Within the Curriculum: Using a Rubric to Shape a Program

Situating Information Literacy Within the Curriculum: Using a Rubric to Shape a Program | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

Abstract: This article reports on a pilot study to examine undergraduate students’ help-seeking behavior when undertaking library research in online courses. A novel methodology incorporating elements of ethnographic research resulted in a small, but rich and detailed, collection of qualitative data. The data suggest that the methodology has promise for future, larger studies on students in online learning environments. The article includes a detailed discussion of the methodology’s strengths and weaknesses, and offers recommendations for modifications that will improve the research design.
