New Literacies Alliance – Critical Thinking for Complex Times

New Literacies Alliance – Critical Thinking for Complex Times | Center for Teaching Excellence Resource Center | Scoop.it
The New Literacies Alliance is a dynamic consortial curricular project led by librarians from multiple institutions across the United States.
Our purpose is to address the new literacies required for academic success and lifelong learning in a cutting edge online learning platform that allows students to master skills at their own pace.

Our hope is to collaborate with other institutions to create a common curriculum, based on characteristics of the ACRL Information Literacy Framework (and related) standards, to use as a leveling platform for library and research instruction.
