Abstract

This presentation will cover a brief overview of the new Framework for Information Literacy and how one librarian adapted the new framework into a College Writing Library Instruction session. The class employed several different teaching strategies. First, using the flipped classroom approach, students completed online research modules prior to class. Second, both the writing faculty and librarian together selected three specific databases and gave ample class time to conduct discovery-based searching. The newly adapted session covered two Frameworks, "Research as Inquiry" and "Searching as Exploration". The session will also address strategies to minimize cognitive overload associated with discovery-based learning.
