Online Interactive Information Literacy Modules

Covering necessary information literacy topics in a traditional "one shot" session can be difficult. To address this challenge, a suite of interactive online modules were developed to provide active learning lessons on various information literacy topics. The modules can be used in fully online, flipped or face-to-face courses and can be integrated into a learning management system (LMS) so student knowledge and progress can be tracked and assessed. Developed using Articulate Storyline, the sources files are available as open source downloads under a GNU General Public License (GPLv3) from the Marquette University Libraries GitHub site. Please feel free to download and continue to enhance and improve these modules.

“Sunrise, Sunset”: A Reflection on Assessment and the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education

This is a guest post at ACRLog.org, published on January 27, 2015, in which I reflect on the relationship between the Framework and assessment of student learning in and through our information literacy programs, as well as how this relates to the eventual rescission of the Information Literacy Competency Standards (formally rescinded a year and a half later on June 25, 2016). Note that the timing of the post was about a week before the ACRL Board of Directors moved to 'file' the Framework (on February 2, 2015); a year later the Framework was formally adopted by the ACRL Board on January 11, 2016. Though the post is almost two years old (as of this writing), the ideas in it may prove valuable to those seeking to integrate the Framework into their local curricula through the cyclical program review process that all curricula undergo.

Collegiate Research: More than Google

Drawing on the frames "Scholarship as conversation" and "Information creation as a process," this lesson was created for students in a university-wide freshman success seminar.  An instruction librarian and writing faculty collaborated to create the lesson under the auspices of the university's Center for Academic Services and Advising, which coordinates the seminar.
