Information Literacy Tips for Faculty
Our goal is to develop a body of information literate students who are capable of using critical thinking and inquiry skills to evaluate, assess, challenge, and create information as college-level researchers.
As such, ELAC Faculty Librarians are committed to working closely with faculty across all disciplines on the incorporation and scaffolding of research skills.
Below are some tips, reminders, and best practices for ELAC faculty:
If you are interested in learning how to better incorporate information literacy skills in your classroom and maximize your students' learning, please feel free to contact any of our Instruction Librarians to set up a one-on-one consultation.
Framework for Information Literacy
The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) has developed a framework through which college librarians can approach the teaching and learning of information literacy skills.
ELAC Librarians use the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education as a theoretical and practical guide when interacting with all of our students, whether we are working one-on-one with a student at the Research Help Desk or facilitating a customized research session for a class of forty students.
The Framework is organized into six frames, representing interrelated information literacy concepts:
The Framework allows faculty and librarians to encourage and guide students to question, engage, and participate in the creation and evaluation of information as college-level researchers.
