Target Audience

Abstract

In this workshop, we will introduce participants to the GGC Library method of altering the old pattern and tailoring the new ACRL Framework to fit an information literacy program. Participants will be given a packet including an essential question and student learning outcomes drawn from the knowledge practices, dispositions, and performance indicators of both the new Framework and the old Standards. Working in small groups, participants will identify the selected outcomes that are responsive to the essential question and will work collaboratively to assign each outcome to an appropriate level of student ability and understanding. Participants will then work together to determine where in the research process their EQs and SLOs belong. The small groups will be asked to report out to the larger body and everyone will be invited to contribute to a large group discussion. The presenters will facilitate the participants’ efforts and lead the discussion on the possibilities and pitfalls of using this iterative method for structuring an academic information literacy program. Participants will be able to describe the GGC Library method, practice it with their peers, and take it home to begin implementing at their own institutions.

Timeframe:

5 min – Presenter introductions

10 min- Background and history of GGC Library method

40 min – Activity – 1) determine relevant SLOs for each EQ, 2) scaffold those SLOs from beginner to expert levels of practice, 3) determine how the EQ and SLOs fits into the overall research process

15 min – Wrap up - Limitations and Future Directions
