Presentation Description

The author demonstrates how a multi-media approach can be used across disciplines to develop the information literacy skills of today’s students through a review of an assignment written for a first-year global awareness course in which students produce a group portfolio as their final project. Students choose one human right as it is described in the United Nations’ 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights and create a collection of material demonstrating their understanding of that right, their appreciation of how it affects them in their native cultural context, and their knowledge of how this right is being respected and abused around the globe.
