Jan'15: Teaching Information Literacy to College Students (ALA)

An asynchronous course and e-book bundle beginning January 5, 2015 and continuing for 3 weeks.

In an age where information overload is the norm, the ability to understand the quality and organization of information is crucial for college students. As the gatekeepers of this information, librarians must have the ability to convey the concepts of fundamental information literacy to students. In this eCourse, Joanna M. Burkhardt draws from her bestselling book Teaching Information Literacy: 50 Standards-Based Exercises for College Students to show you how to create challenging,  engaging lessons and exercises that will give college students the foundation they need to distinguish between the easiest sources to find and the best sources to use. In addition to three weeks of facilitated discussion, readings and course exercises, all participants will receive an electronic copy of Joanna’s book.
