Presentation Description

The Big6 is an information literacy model developed by Mike Eisenberg and Bob Berkowitz to address the information literacy needs of students. Because of its flexibility, each component of the Big6 can be used individually or together as a unit, making the Big6 a complement to the information literacy initiative on the college or university campus. This workshop will introduce and outline the use of the Big6 in higher education, its correlation to the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards, and provide examples of use of the Big6 in curriculum mapping, course design, assignment development, assessment and related issues. Although the focus of this presentation is higher education, k-12 conference participants may glean useful information from the workshop contents.
