IIG’s Spring Workshop offers a variety of different sessions on ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. Come with your questions about the new Framework and leave with great ideas and tips.
In “Bring in the New by Tweaking the Old!” Information Literacy Coordinator Rares Piloiu (Otterbein University) will introduce librarians to instructional methods and strategies to help them incorporate the Framework into their teaching.
Sherri Saines, Subject Librarian for the Social Sciences at Ohio University, will discuss how she rewrote the ACRL Framework in “lay language,” useful for faculty workshops and collaboration, in her presentation “’How Information Works’: Translating the Frames for a Wider Audience.”
Starting the afternoon session, Social Media Coordinator and Subject Librarian for Ohio University’s Scripps College Jessica Hagman and Rebekah Perkins Crawford, Doctoral Candidate and Associate Basic Course Director for Scripps School of Communication, will share their collaborative work on creating assignments that integrate the new Framework in “Building an Information Literacy Structure in the Public Speaking Course.”
In “Integrating College Learning Goals and the ACRL Framework into Information Literacy,” Special Initiatives Librarian Rosalinda H. Linares (Oberlin College) and Visiting Asst. Professor Kathryn Miller (Oberlin College) will discuss a librarian-faculty collaboration to map college learning goals and the ACRL Framework to essential, discipline-specific threshold concepts in two introductory course.
The day will also include round table discussions about the ins and outs of the ACRL Framework to provide participants the opportunity to share their own ideas and experiences.
