Abstract

Interesting things happen when an OER-advocating academic librarian is also an adjunct professor for an Introduction to Theater class. Undergraduate students were provided the types and number of class assessments, as well as ACRL’s Information Literacy Framework. After the Framework was examined, students were then asked to work backwards and create a syllabus using Open Educational Resources (OER) and affordable course materials. This case study examines students as co-teachers imposing the Framework themselves, and the resulting empowerment that occurs as the students take ownership of their (low-cost) theater education.
